“Cool bar. Macabre in the best possible way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We had a couple of beers in this bar. Lots of skulls and skeletons make the dark and small bar look brilliant. Large beers are served in skull mugs and you can perch them on a Perspex topped coffin, complete with skeleton inside.

A must see, even just for one drink.

“Worth a drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

A quirky bar- very dark when you come in from outside, and beer served in skulls and a glass topped coffin complete with skeleton! We went in the afternoon and a few people were in but I imagine it gets busier later. Quite a few people popped their heads in with children and left pretty fast as the kids seemed scared! There is a decent drinks list and the barman was helpful when making a choice. A bit pricier than a lot of other places though.

“Cool bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Definitely a must visit if you're out in Brussels! Very cool bar - open coffins for tables and drinks served out of skulls! Very relaxed atmosphere and the music was excellent. I highly recommend it although it is a little pricey!

“Yeah, it's a goth-themed bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Definitely a place you should check out once as it is just off the Grand Place. The decor is goth - caskets, skeletons, etc. You can even get your beer in a skull mug. Beyond that, there is not much to it. Average beer choices, indifferent servers, regulars hanging out at bar, younger crowd sitting at tables, and tourists.

“Brilliant bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

This bar is a great place to drink. Good atmosphere, friendly locals and bar staff. Awesome tunes, Metallica, iron maiden, system of a down, ACDC, good times! AND you drink beer out of skull. Definitely worth a visit.
