I went there several times in a week and everytime I was stunished by the crazy environment inside. It's a dark, dusty place with a beer card with over 300 varieties and with the bar owner being literally the soul of the bar.

Not a restaurant but a wonderfully scruffy no-nonsense traditional beer bar with fabulous beer choice (over 300) at very reasonable prices. Forget frills and fal-lals, just get down to the happy business of enjoying as many examples of Belgium's glorious beer heritage as your liver will stand.

Quiet place with random opening hours. It claims to serve 650 different beers at very reasonable prices. Could happily spend hours there.

If you're looking to stay in Mechelen and try a variety of beer this is the place to go to. Also a few games to play like Monopoly and checkers...Huge selection with good prices and right by the center of the city. Doesn't serve food.
