Brasserie Belli is a cozy cafe & restaurant located in the center of Aarhus in walking distance of the Music Hall, Aarhus Theatre, Svalegangen Theatre, Aros and The Old Town. The brasserie was founded in 1994, and is run by the Belli family, which you can’t mention without bringing up their rich history and ties to the old circus.
We serve honest food using quality raw materials from local suppliers; apples from Grandma Bitten’s old apple trees and products from the Belli brothers’ herb garden.
Our goal is to have any person leave Brasserie Belli with happy stomachs and a part of Belli in their hearts.
We look forward to hosting you.
Circus Belli was the biggest and most famous circus in Denmark for many years. The owner of the circus, Metha Belli, managed to take it from a small travelling circus to a large one with artists from around the world in only a few years. One of the biggest coups she did was to have the world famous cowboy hero, Tom Mix, be part of the circus. Circus Belli had it’s last season in 1956, when Metha Belli died. The circus tradition was withheld by Metha Bellis grandchild, my father Leo Belli, who became an acrobat. I was also one before I decided to become a chef. Today I run Brasserie Belli in Aarhus.
