This was a pleasant surprise given the location(opposite Mannekin pis statuette)Plenty of locals were using it as well.Main bar is upstairs from the entrance door,more setting is available through the bar and down the stairs at the back.Decorated with cartoons,costumes used for the statue and puppets.Not sure the cases of beer on the ceiling look too safe!Had a good beer list including what was left of the Christmas specials.Two 8.8% Gordon Christmas beers at €4.5 each and a plate of cheese and salami(to soak up the beer)€5.30.A nice touch that the waitress saw I had tried to get the beer label off the bottle and got a label for me.Recommend as another unusual bar.Will be returning.

This is a must if you´re visiting Bruxelles city center. Especially designed for those who love brewery and delicacies of this enchanted country. Service is amazing: the staff knows how to treat the customer who´s interested in discovering pub and beer culture. A taste of "Belgian Geuze beer" together with "tartine au fromage" it´s suggested. Atmosphere under Christmas time make things even cosier!

Called in for a quick drink after seeing the Mannekin Pis. Loved the decor staff were friendly, and considering it is located in a tourist trap the prices are very reasonable. Next time I am in Brussels I will be spending a lot more time here.

Great place to try something different on the beer front. Quirky decor with warm welcoming bar staff. Have to be lucky to get in as very popular being opposite the Mannequin Pis. Great place to get away from the shopping into the warm but also good if you can get a table under the heated lamps outside and take in the local surroundings, particularly at Christmas with an impromtu band playing.

If you are sightseeing near the Grand'Place of Brussels, this is definitely the place to have a rest and try one of the numerous Belgian beers. Although the place is quite touristic, the price is reasonable and the service excellent!
