Date night at the Pôle Well
Retour à la vie de quartier

As well as being an excellent gift destination, the Pôle Well is also a place to go out with friends or couples, day or night! With its luminous, fairy-tale decor and numerous cafés, restaurants and bars, the Well promises to satisfy every craving, from gastronomic delights to moments of relaxation.

Here are just a few of the things you can do as a couple or with your friends to make your day at the Pôle Well a memorable and fun-filled one!

A brunch is a must

If you are an early bird, start your day in style with a brunch at the sumptuous and decadent Janine Café-Brunch. The hushed atmosphere makes it ideal for an elegant breakfast with your date or brunch with friends.

Turn your meal into a boozy brunch with a mimosa or fill up on vitamins with a tasting of fresh juices, and you’re all set for the day ahead!

Then take a stroll along rue Wellington to browse the boutiques and admire the shop windows decorated by the merchants. Keep your eyes open for the magnificent illustrations by artist Youloune, who has left her delicate pencil strokes in a few of the windows. Take the opportunity to pick up a few gifts for the family as you pass through the shops on the street!

Continue on to the Enchanted Alley and the giant Christmas tree between the Notre-Dame-Des-Sept-Douleurs church, to capture the moment with photos that will immortalize your festivities.

It’s the perfect occasion to create memories to share on social networks and revive your Instagram feed. Use the keywords #PromenadeWellington and #VerdunLuv to share your luv!

Take a snack break to warm up!

If you need an afternoon break, head to Sweet Lee’s, a rustic bakery and café where you can warm up with a good cup of coffee and a decadent homemade pastry. Or, if you and your gang are more in the mood for something salty, head to Brook – Coffee and Pizza Bar, where you can accompany your coffee with a nice big slice of steaming NYC pizza!

A great way to recharge your batteries before your next stop at Pôle Well!

Enjoy an afternoon drink or tea

After a busy afternoon strolling the streets, shopping and admiring the sights at Pôle Well, it’s time for an aperitif!

At dusk, invite your significant other or a long-time friend to join you for an aperitif at P2- Cocktail & Cru to sip delicious cocktails in a jazzy atmosphere!

If you prefer a more zen atmosphere, opt instead for the Maison de Thé Cha Noir, where a refined selection of teas awaits you. It’s the perfect place to share a romantic moment, or simply relax and sip a tasty, comforting cup of tea.

Whatever your preference, these places are a must for prolonging the pleasure of the day!

A good dinner at Rita's or a Well restaurant

Alternatively, you can skip the aperitif and go straight to dinner! Promenade Wellington has restaurants for every palate! Take Rita, for example, whose fine Italian cuisine will delight your taste buds. Or for a more party atmosphere, the LineMichel bistro is ready to welcome you and help you enjoy a great evening!

Wellington by night

If you’re a bit more of a night owl, and have come to admire the Pôle Well and its lights, why not round off the evening in style with one of the many activities on offer in the street’s bars?

Attend one of the many comedy evenings, take part in a wild karaoke Saturday at Le Palco, test your knowledge in a lively quiz at Bar Social, or sip a good craft beer in front of a hockey game broadcasted at Benelux.
