when you need a little Grande Place

Enjoyable mix of people, drinks music and atmospheres. Seems to cater to most tastes. Drinks priced pretty near average for Brussels.

Excellent in 2012 , 2013, now the place became empty, with few people, and very homogenous crowd. Not worth going anymore.

Nice little place with very special variety of music. A Greek and Balkan mixture I think it was when I've been there. Was really fun to go. And also lots of people from that culture are there. And the Bloody Mary was also good. Had a fun time.

I was here last night and I am an English speaker, the owner was not. But he made me feel not only comfortable, but also like a fellow Belgium citizen. He took my initial order and immediately recommended a much better selection for beer. I sat down at my table with my beer and shortly after I was greeted with... More

Multi culture crowd. Very central and the only one open till early morning. Must place to be in Brussels. Face control on weekends. No smoking inside anymore. Party time :)

Multicultural people, ethnic music, one of the best Mojito and other cocktails. Party till dawn. Must for international people.

It's the first time a bar owner talks to me like some kind of mafia. I will never go back to this place mostly because of his attitude... Expensive place with a very very poor customer service...

Came to Belgium, Brussels for the first time, my friend recommended this place. That was good choice to spend Saturday night! Lovely and very friendly service. Amazing music, absolutely FUN! No youngsters. Not that expensive. Definitely coming back! indeed

We saw the board up for 3 for 2 on Mojitos so decided to try this place out. Its location is fantastic, just off the Grand' Place. With the offer, three Mojitos worked out at €5 each! There are lots of tables on the pavement and it makes for a great place to people-watch in the evening.

A great bar, enjoyed a couple of cosmopolitans, very reasonably priced. The only slight down side for us was that smoking is allowed inside. It's a lively place, with a good atmosphere.
