Spotted this place when looking for somewhere to get out of the rain and some of us went back later for more of the same!
Inside is quite fabulous, my Daughter was fascinated with all the puppets and the collection of statue tat in the glass case on the wall. Our friends who went back asked about all the plaques on the tables and apparently they are named for the regulars who are always offered a seat at the reserved table should they come in and it's busy.

A place next to Manneken Pis with a great selection of beers. Food is limited to a cheese selection and some small bites. The decoration is chaotic and fills every square inch of the walls, and somehow it is.. nice! You better serve your beer yourselves from the bottle unless you want half of it on the table :-)

You have two options: 1. Sit inside with all the beautiful decoration, 2. Take a seat outside where you will watch the unbelievable hordes of tourists who pay tribute to Manneken Pis every couple of seconds. If you can't understand this, just order another beer. :-)

We entered this bar on our 1st day around 3pm & it was so busy. There were no seats so we left. I however was determined to go back and have a drink there. I did read previously on trip advisor it gets very busy so we got there the following day around 11am and got a seat no problem. It got busy very quick tho do would advise the earlier u can get there the better.
The decor in this place is great I loved it. There's puppets everywhere and heads hanging from the ceiling. Great fun.

The beer menu is only second to Delirium Cafe. Many sizes and types not found anywhere else. The service is great and friendly. It is located next to a tourist spot so you get many tourists wondering about. It is one of the most go places in Belgium is you love beer.

this little place makes the trip to Mannekin Pis all the more worth it as it's literally over the road.
It's great and quirky inside with a fantastic amount of beet to choose from.
Great atmosphere, staff and drinks :) number one for us!
