Love love this bar right beside the mannequin pis. You can't miss it when in Brussels. Great beers and wine! Recommend it. Seems to be loved by locals and tourists alike!

Stepping through the doors for the first time can be a little unsetting but in a good way. The bar lives up to its name as it is filled with marionettes and puppets. They occupy ever available space including the ceiling! I've have never seen this place empty and for good reason; the beer list is extensive and the staff... More

The best place for beer without doubt. Great range of beer and efficient staff. Puppet paraphernalia all over the walls.

Prices are not so cheap but... More

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
