Just across the road from the Mannekin Pis, this was the best spot we found on a three-night stay in Brussels. It’s popular, so it’s sometimes hard to get a seat, but we were lucky that a group was leaving just as we were entering. It’s decked out with dangling puppets and old pictures, so it looks good, and there’s... More

Nice bar located right next to Mannekin Pis with a nice outdoor seating and good view of the statue. It looks quite cosy on the outside but on the inside the bar is quite big and beautifully decorated, with interesting knick knacks, puppets and statues. The drinks are nice with a good selection of beers, very limited food but generous... More

Came here for the 1st time as a close friend is a Brussels regular and took me here. Fantastic character and the doll/puppet figures that are spread around the place are so cool but kind of creepy at the same time! Beer selection is amazing here and our waitress was a tall blonde with great recommendations, which were all were... More

I was recommended this pub, and it did not disappoint. The pub is literally just across the street from the famous Manneken Pis, so it's very easy to find - and i'm surprised that it's not busier than it is! It was always very easy to find a nice spot to retire to. The decor is very unusual - lots... More

We had the good fortune of staying right near this gem of a beer bar in Brussels. It became our trademark place to stop off for a late beer on the way back to our B&B. Filled with locals and tourists alike, it was a fabulous place to enjoy great Belgian beer in a reasonably quiet, yet fun-filled bar. The... More

Very good selection of Belgian beer. not as snooty as most places in Brussels. Bizarre collection of mannekin costumes and related puppet outfits

This is one of my favorite bars I've ever been to. The inside is filled with a variety of unusual items, but it doesn't feel kitschy. The music is a great mix of jazz and '50s soul. The beer list is one of the best we saw during our time in Brussels. We grabbed a table inside (don't sit outside... More
