About
You can find a contemporary juke joint in the historical heart of the city of Ghent. It has been installed behind a century-old facade. The old-fashioned interior with imposing pictures and cosy design give the place that special feel of a beautiful 21st-century Blues bar. Your New Orleans in Europe. “Missy Sippy, the place you call home!” Missy Sippy is a cozy and beautiful bar, open 7 days a week. On many occasions we organise concerts, jams and other types of live music. Hosts Marie and Jelle corteously invite you in and are assisted by a strong team of bartenders. They serve with a smile, know how to enterain you and prepare drinks and barbites with passion and expertise. Let yourself be seduced by the friendly atmosphere of this barrelhouse, imagine yourself in a sweaty juke joint on the banks of the Mississippi and dance the night away! Let’s boogie! We are keeping the blues, jazz, rootsmusic and swing alive. On a weekly base, we organise concerts, jams, dj-sets & dance nights.

It was a hoot
Feb 2020
As an American traveling in Belgium, it was a hoot seeing 50-100 folks bopping their heads to three Belgian guys covering blues songs. The bartenders were good / attentive / kept things moving in spite of the volume of requests. All the seats were filled but it was still comfortable and not overly-crowded (although, it was a Tuesday night, so perhaps things get a bit busier on weekends). The age of audience members was remarkable diverse from students to retireees. It was nice to see live music without a cover charge and with reasonably priced drinks. All in all - nice bar to pop into and enjoy some music.

When someone takes your money, the Missy Sippy will definitely have your back.
Dec 2019 • Friends
So. One evening last week, I was at one of my favorite bars in Gent; The Missy Sippy.

I had just ordered a round of drinks for my friends and I and set my change on the bar by where I was talking with the DJ about some soul and funk playlists, (the music was SO good that evening)!

Anyway, in the process of my visit with him, this random person mistakenly took my change from the round I had just bought.

The DJ saw what I didn’t noticed and spoke up to this man who in turn put up a fight saying that the money was his.

The bartenders stepped in, and when this man, (so drunk like everyone else in the bar), refused to admit that he made a mistake; they called the authorities, got my change back for me and made an honest man of this fool.

I will forever adore these people for what they did for me and I will always support the Missy Sippy for having my back when I was to distracted to do so myself.

100 STARS FOR THE MISSY SIPPY!!!

LOVE TOU GUYS! ROCK ON!!

Hi Abbey, Thank you so much for your reaction! We strive everyday to make people feel at home and it's a good feeling when that is recognised. We couldn't exist without clients like you and so many more who visit the bar for a good time, catch a show or dance to the dj's tunes at night! Taking the bad apples out of the batch is only part of our job, and we will continue to try our best to keep up the good work. Always welcome, Jelle and Marie

Terrible service, I will never go there again
Dec 2019 • Friends
The bartender was xenophobic to me and my friends because we didn't order the amount of beers he wanted. I understand some places have their own "rules" (btw they should be written so), but saying I don't know how to behave and I should get the f*ck off their country is way over the line. I will denunce him for xenophobia.

What you explain here has got NOTHING to do with being Xenophobic, I merely stated that here your behaviour is deemed very rude, and one should know the basic behavioural rules in a country before acting like you maybe would at home. Although I am farely certain that -wherever one is from- this behaviour would not be tolerated. If you take up 3 spaces in a bussiness with only one paying customer, I don't think this would be apropriate anywhere. In the case of you calling us 'xenophobic", may I please refer to our social media & house policy, where we clearly state that everyone of any kind is welcome here. We are a safe space. You might want to check the reactions of hundreds of our clients who have been coming to our bussiness for the last 5 years. From all over the world and of any colour, sexual preference or religion, mind you . Sincerely, Marie and Jelle Owners Missy Sippy

Xenophobic bartender

Bad service. The bartender was xenophobic with me and my friends because not everyone at the table ordered drinks. Because of that they will say that we don't know how to behave in other country and kicked us out of the bar.

Great spot

A very relaxed environment in the middle of Ghent. A good range of Belgian beer is available and you can catch live music on various nights.

Led Zepplin style Blues
Sep 2019 • Friends
On a Wednesday night in Ghent, after a lovely dinner, we stopped in at the Missy Sippy to listen to some live music over an after dinner beverage. Much to our surprise, the blues band was amazing, and for us, a throwback to the ‘70’s. We stayed for the evening and were really glad we decided to stop in. Everyone had tons of fun and we will certainly return on our next visit.

Always amazing. Authentic, Great music, great people
Jul 2019
I've seen this place grow since day one, they have a very clear concept & you can feel and see the passion they put into this place. I can honestly say this is by far the best bar in Ghent. The music, the barbites, the beers & cocktails, and great staff this is what a bar is supposed to be! Right in the historic city centre without being a tourist trap or not feeling genuine. A unique place to sit on the terrace with a nice drink during the day or enjoy some amazing live music at night.

Always full of life here 10/10 would recommend :)
