Excellent Wine Bar

Here you can enjoy a good glass of wine in a relaxed atmosphere. The owner guides you through the bottles she serves by the glass and there is always something new to discover. We are every summer for a few weeks in Bruges and we always pass by this lovely place.

This is a great wine bar for pre or post dinner drinks - open late and we went 2 nights in a row. Very helpful bartender. Cute small tables outside in front, but not many so don't plan to get one. The bar is small and tight, but cozy. There is a second level, but we stayed on the ground... More

We dropped in by chance for a drink but were impressed with their menu. We ended up having a selection of tapas type snacks. The cafe often has live music (usually jazz) and is very popular (booking essential on music nights) . Staff very friendly and helpful. Cafe is on two floors - upstairs is almost a gallery overlooking ground... More

We found this place from the Lonely Planet guide book to Bruges and went to check it out prior to booking on a Sunday. It's small, on two levels but has a lovely intimate vibe about it. Sunday night they have a live musician playing throughout and we enjoyed a very talented guitar/vocalist. It's run by a lovely couple who... More

A short enjoyable stroll from Bruges 'Markt' is this incredibly welcoming & well frequented wine bar. Operating on just two small floors, what this bar lacks in space it more than makes up for in selection of wines & friendly clientele. A true wine lovers establishment with an excellent glass sized selection of distinct Bordeaux, Rounded Raspberry Pinot Noir, Sexily... More

We came here after dinner for late night drinks. It's a small bar with not many tables, but the alcohol selection is brilliant and the atmosphere was very subtle.

Popped in here for a cheeky drink and really did find a hidden gem ! The wine bar is run by a couple whose knowledge of wine is exceptional. They have a wide range of wine and the small coziness of the wine bar is a perfect setting for a quiet drink. They had a young barman working the bar... More

Wijnbar Est is tiny, and the tables are squeezed into every space. It is warm and welcoming, and we were shown upstairs to a little table by the balcony rail, looking down into the busy downstairs, and across to the even tinier performers' area where "Double Blue" were completing their sound check. We ordered a very good bottle of Bordeaux... More

Small and crowded, but the warm accommodating owners make you feel like you're sitting in their living room. The tapas are reasonably priced since the are top shelf cheese meats. The wine selection both interesting and complete. You will not be disappointed.
