Right opposite the Mannekin Pis this is a great place to stop for a drink. The unusual interior decorated with puppets adds to the atmosphere, the staff were slightly slow to begin with but we didn't mind as we were taking in the unusual decoration! Tried our first Kwak here great beer choice!

We went to this bar because its right next to Manneken Pis and we wanted to people watch. As it happened we had to go inside as it started to rain but it was well worth it a look inside. The décor is amazing but if you don't like puppets then this place is not for you. Again, the menu... More

Great selection of beer right across from the Manneken Pis. Large area to sit outside with a view of the little pissing boy. Would recommend

Great place, but usually pretty crowded. There's pretty good selection of beers and some snacks available.

A former puppet theatre, this little pub maintains the theme with its decor: puppets abound! We had read bad reviews about rude staff: however, the two waiters could not have been more charming when we visited. It was late in the evening and the atmosphere very relaxed. Directly opposite the Mannekin Pis it's well worth a visit.

Brilliant interior totally different to any Belgian or European bar I have frequented. The staff were friendly, attentive and very helpful with the wide ranging menu of beers. Will definitely return should I go back to Brussels.

Weirdest interiors ever, not sure what does it have in common with Brussels but maybe I am not aware of something. Great beer, good snacks, excellent and helpfull staff!

This is a great pub right across the road from the Manekken Pis - it was very busy on a Saturday night but we had no trouble getting a table. Service was quick, friendly and knowledgeable - the waiters were happy to make recommendations based on what we told them we had tried and liked already. The interior is really... More

A huge selection of beers, fast and polite service, very interesting decoration. A must go in Brussels and a good choice to go regularly if you live here.
