Digital Assets: A Brussels Bar With An Anarchic Past Will Accept Bitcoin

August 30, 2021 | Digital Assets, News

In the sixties, the Dolle Mol bar on the Rue des Éperonniers in Brussels was a haven for anarcho-artistic regulars.

Dolle Mol, the colorfully attractive bar on a Brussels street has come a long way since its checkered history of anarchism. Unsurprisingly, its street frontage is a bright red, and inside, it has a cosy, eclectic décor, music, and a great choice of local beers. But it’s moving with the times and now offers “pints” for “coins,” that is to say, bitcoin. (

Buy a pint; pay with coin

Dolle Mol, the storied bar and cafe on the Rue des Éperonniers in downtown Brussels, has become one of the first establishments in the city to accept payment in cryptocurrency, according to the Belgian English-language news portal the Bulletin, cited by

Said Grégoire, one of the owners of the restaurant: “The cafe has to move with the times – cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are the money of the future. We want to give everyone the opportunity to buy a pint with this new payment method.”

Though the payment method has yet to take off, Grégoire admits it was launched only recently, and “people don’t really know that yet.”

“There is a sticker on the door that makes that clear but that’s about it,” he adds. “It’s a bit like the internet in the 1990s.”

How it works

A Dolle Mol customer can make payment for his pint with bitcoin via a QR code.

That transfers the money to the personal account of the owners, who deposit an equivalent amount in the bar’s cash register.
