Coworking and much more: our services
It’s about coworking, on the one hand, but also offices and meeting rooms, legal address and an on-demand secretarial support. The Mug: an all-in-one combo in a professional and friendly atmosphere.
In 2014, Stephan de Brabandere, entrepreneur, and Lauranne Lahaye, journalist, launched the coworking adventure with a clear idea in mind: to create an alternative to existing centers, often cold and inflexible. The Mug’s formulas can be adapted to your desires: come occasionally or frequently, move from one center to another according to your appointments!
From Brussels to Enghien: 4 locations
The Mug concept covers two cities and four centers: The Mug Schuman, The Mug Flagey and The Mug Kanaal, in Brussels, and The Mug Enghien, in Hainaut. Our spaces are accessible by public transport, you can park easily (and in front of each Brussels center, there is a bike rack). The Mug is open 7 days a week. With your personal digicode, you can make yourself at home: come on in, make yourself a hot tea, use the printer/scanner, change places when you feel like it.
We dreamed of a friendly, reassuring place. A place where everything is easy and included, from fair trade coffee to meeting rooms. A place to meet people but where everyone goes his own way. A place that helps us build an open and sustainable society, too.
1. Coworking: all inclusive
Our coworking memberships give access to all four centers, without restriction. From 1 day to a whole a week, you choose. Good to know: the Walloon Region contributes 80% of your subscription; the Brussels Region offers you a bonus of 450€! As a bonus: your subscription offers hours of meeting rooms rental!
2. Private and shared offices
Sharing an office with other freelancers or teams, or setting up your team in a private, custom-made office: everything is possible!

Each Mug member has access to our 10 lovely meeting rooms, free of charge. Not a member? You are very welcome as well, of course!
4. Legal address and mail service
Do you want to set up your company’s head office with us? Good idea, our locations are strategically situated: the Grand-Place of Enghien, the European Quarter, the canal of Brussels and the vibrant place Flagey. Our packages include: mail reception, sorting, scanning and/or mailing, parcel collection. As a bonus: your subscription offers 4 hours of meeting rooms rental or 1 day of coworking per month!
5. The Mug Solutions

We assist you with managing your calls, creating and formatting documents, filing and following up invoices, writing mails, applying for subsidies…
In June 2021, The Mug took over the keys of Le Phare du Kanaal, a coworking space and restaurant, and extended its services to the catering sector. At Le Phare, people eat local and seasonal food. The place, right next to the Brussels canal, can be rented out 365 days a year.
We are the cheapest
The Mug is managed by freelancers who work there. And since no financial barrier should prevent you from innovating and brainstorming, we make sure to remain the cheapest on the market. Do you have any questions? Contact us (we’ll get back to you within the day): firstname.lastname@example.org.
