“A good beer lesson”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Stumbled across this place whilst hunting out the toilets in the historium... Glad we did as it was a good place to visit. You can get a sample board of 3 Belgian beers, lots of choice. Good views across the market place, free WiFi.

“Good, not great”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I imagine that the company have paid a pretty penny for the privilege of having the bar attached to the Historium and there is nothing wrong with that. Its not a bad bar by any means, it just doesn't have that 'real' feel. Great view of Markt from the terrace though.

“Visit for the view”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Mr Smith was very keen to visit this unique bar, located on the first floor of Historium. On the plus side, there is Duvel beer to be drunk and what a terrific balcony to sit on and watch the world go by in the Markt below. There is no obligation to visit the (chargeable) attraction on the same site. The prices for the drinks were comparable to the other bars in the same locale.

It was a shame that it doesn't appear to be open any later than 18:00.

Reviewed May 19, 2014

It's the mecca for all things Duval. Great chandelier made out of Duvel bottles.there is a great area to walk outside and take some pictures of the town square for some height above the city.

“‘A nice bar with good beers’”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This is really only known of if you visit the Tourist Info or Historium Brugge which share in the same building.
We had an entertaining hour here on a rainy afternoon in Bruges. Hidden away on the first floor is the Duvelorium (Grand Beer Café), a beer bar.
There is an outside terrace.
There is a fine selection of draught (at least 6) and bottled beers with helpful and knowledgeable advice from the barman.
Very good service if a bit expensive, but then Bruges is very expensive
Recommended and if you go don’t miss seeing the beer bottle chandelier.
