Friendly barman. Over 100 beers available at crazy low prices. Even the 10% alcohol beers are 4 euro or less. Smells noticeably like cig smoke...probably people smoke outside the doorway and it blows in. Doesn't bother me though. Bathrooms were surprisingly adequate. Darts and foosball...More

This place is amazing. Most authentic local experience you can have in Bruges. Barman/Owner is clearly an international badman. Beer selection is on point. Local brews, Fort Lapin, big on the menu. Located under an old church, you'll miss the entrance if you're not looking....More
