I don't know how we found this place but it was gem. Crossed off a few new beers on a evening in Ghent. It was busy but we got there at a good time and got a table. We picked the first round and based on that our awesome server helped us with the rest. He made great recommendation and... More

I organised a weekendtrip to Gent with people from work. We were there two days. For lunch we had the 'Breugeltafel'. It is a good way to meet some of the local products of the city. Beers, musturd, meat, bread. We only paid 11 euro per person and this was not much for all the things we had.

Beer selection is very good. Attitudes consistently poor, we've been here several times over a couple of years and it's always been the same.

This just concluded my nightlife Ghent experience. What a great selection. I am proud of myself :) Just another bar but no way you'll be disappointed.

This small bar, tucked down a side street it seems, has a full menu of wonderful beers. Oh to have the time to try them all!

Nicely situated on the banks of the canal. Buzzing with life at 11pm. Great selection of blonde fruit and brown beers.

We were looking for a pub in Gent and we found this, so we came in and we were so lucky! Amazing beers, and nicely-oldy-stylish pub (i would say), especially second floor! It was just a pleasure to have a beer there!

Frequented this beautiful beer cafe during Gentse Feesten and fell in love with the views. Right by the river, excellent vibe, friendly staff and reasonable prices fir the beers. Spoiled for choice with the variety ! Very romantic in the evening ;)

Although I am tea-totaller, I went there with friends and saw how beer lovers were exited and satisfied with variety of Belgian beers. To my surprize, you can get beer within minutes you order, but if you order simple plain... More
