We visit this place two nights in a row and it was great! Leo, the guy who took care of us, is nice, funny, very serviceminded and makes you feel wellcomed. The atmospher is youthfull and relaxed but it suits anyone who wants great food (italian) and tasty beer...and don't we all want great food, drinks and to feel wellcomed?

We have a group of 34 currently staying at the hostel, and using all facilities, and I am blown away and so thankful for the spice and hospitality they have provided. All 34 young adults love the atmosphere and the staff have been fantastic. Im so impressed.

Good location across from where we were staying, very lively and noisy at night. Bar staff friendly, it is attached to a hostel so mostly full of younger people. I didn't try the toilet facilities as mentioned in previous reviews.

Lively bar, mostly for the young, but had a drink here early one evening. Got a lot more lively as the evening went on and we went next door for a meal. They do food here but wouldn't treat this place as somewhere to eat. This place provides Hostel facilities to travellers. The Hostel is upstairs, and the Toilets, the... More

We walked into Charlie Rockets because I remembered seeing it in my Lonely Planet book. The waiter/bar tender was attentive and wonderful, he had great beer and food recommendations. When we were leaving he invited us back to drink later that night and Charlie Rockets became our hang out spot for the 2 evenings we were in Bruges. The bartender,... More

So many great bars/restaurants in Bruges and this another. Stumbled across Charlie Rockets after leaving our hotel to go for a walk.....popped in for a quick drink and stopped for 3! Great little place, full of rock memorabilia and playing some great music, aimed at the younger set but seemed to appeal to all ages. Had beer recommendations off the... More

We had been told by friends to check this place out and we were delighted that we did. At 55 we probably put the average age up by 50%,but we were made to feel very welcome. Great beers and atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
