Located in the bustling heart of the Belgian city, the warm and cosy bar Missy Sippy brings a modern homage to the Mississippi delta blues – without flaming guitars or Harley’s, but with the joyous atmosphere of a barrel house. Playing a wide range of roots music, they host many events throughout the year. “Missy Sippy is like a ‘two-faced bar’,”co-founder Marie Follebout explains. “You can relax and chat with a drink in hand but also enjoy exuberant dance parties with room for 120 people to swing or boogie.” The gorgeous old-fashioned interior of the bar suggests that it has existed for over 30 years, even though Missy Sippy opened only a year ago.
