    Beautiful views across the square
    Stopped off in Bruges during a cruise and wanted a 'rooftop' bar and this delivered thanks to panoramic views from the balcony. Great accessibility, staff were friendly and gave us a brief history. The beer was great, hot chocolate delicious. Really great spot in the town centre!

    Great views and beers
    We enjoyed our recent visits to Duvelorium. The beer tasting options are good and the views are amazing. I’ve only dropped a star as was met with a rude member of staff downstairs when needing to use the disabled toilet. He told me I wasn’t allowed to and it was for staff only. When I asked which toilet a disabled person should use he told me the “normal ones” -left me feeling very upset. An issue with staff of the historium not the Duvelorium. But still spoiled the experience somewhat! There’s no signage other than indicating it’s the disabled toilet.
    Thank you for your lovely review en glad to read you enjoyed your Duvelorium visit. I'm so sorry about what happened in the toilets. We already talked our staff member about this, so this won't happen again.

    Great setting
    This bar is on the main square and being on the first floor has an amazing aspect looking across the square. There’s a decent selection of beers with the duvel being great. Definitely worth a visit and drinks are no more expensive than elsewhere in Bruges
    Thank you for your lovely review! Feel free to step in again for another Belgian beer!

Fantastic. Staff were brilliant, very friendly and happy to give recommendations. Views out over the market, beer tasting and a tasty cheese and salami dish were a great way to end the Historium experience.

Lovely view, a very relaxing way to spend an afternoon people watching on the Markt. A super friendly barman too, BUT, 70c to use the loo when you're eating and drinking onsite, what's that all about? I wouldn't expect to pay off I was a paying museum visitor either.
This changed our experience from hanging out there for a few hours to one drink and on our way, there are too many better places to go. What a shame.

Hi Katie. Thank you for your review and I'm glad to read you loved the Duvelorium. We're looking for a solution about the toilets. Feel free to have another drink in the bar!

Rude staff, beer what you would expect. Standard bar rude staff who think they work somewhere so important the can speak to customers rudely. Beers around £6.50 sharing snacks cheese etc £14.
Views of the square and okay quiet atmosphere.

My wife and I came here shortly after breakfast. We wanted to drink some beer at 10:00 before enjoying a gorgeous day ahead of us. Wow...this place is near perfection if you love beer. While we came in only for a tasting, the beer was so good we stayed for two more a piece. Needless to say, we got a morning beer buzz. It was an outstanding experience with a view of Grote Markt that cannot be beat. I definitely recommend spending some time here. You will be glad you did!

We visited this pub after a visit of the Historium in Brugge. We loved this place, we ordered two cold beers and some cheese, everything was perfect and the view of Markt Square was stunning. The service was super fast and welcoming. Strongly recommend!

Popped up here for a quick beer, but ended up having a beer tasting selection. 3 beers all very strong around 8-9% but only small amounts 120-250ml. Nice and super tasty all for 10€ .

Friendly staff and of course amazing views. Definitely worth a pit stop

Its all about the view here in this unashamedly blatant tourist trap. If you arrive very early you might be lucky enough to secure a perch on the balcony over the square. If there are no seats left in this prime location, then don't bother. There are plenty of much better bars nearby.

The Duvelorium does indeed offer a beautiful view of the Market Square, and we do our best to allow as many visitors as possible to enjoy this. If the terrace is full, some visitors wait inside until a table becomes available outside, and then move outside. You may indeed pay a little more than in an average bar, but our beers are also unique and specialty beers, which are served at prices that are certainly competitive with other establishments on the Market Square.
