Nice bar , trendy atmosphere . Pretty clear that there is passion in the house . Selection is basic, but nice . Even some foreign beers ! Service was not capable of pouring the beer , which was one of the onlh downsides here . I have the feeling the rotating drafts are normally better ( heard things like hopping frog ) thsn the gulden spoor that was on now . Will return . Nice place , but expected more of this

A solid bar. They don’t have any outrageous offerings but they do have all the classics, and at very good prices. The bottle list includes Alvinne, Struise, a few vintages of Orval, Mikkeller, De Molen, etc. If you’re staying in Kortrijk this might be your best option. The ambiance in here is kind of funny, like a student bar or something, but it’s OK. The staff was very capable. Worth popping by.

Came here during my journey back to Lille from westvleteren .. 2 aspects in this bar are above average .. The selection and the service ... About the selection anyone of us can say whatever he wants because always depends from own experience and knowledge but about service when you find behind the bar a man who knows his job his beers and he doesn’t mind to talk about everithing so what else do you want ..?! Maybe not a must for the Belgium standard but for sure a nice place if you are around here ..

Visited on Friday evening, March 22nd 2013 around 5.15pm. In the centre of town a short 4 or 5 minute walk from the station, the Gainsbar has a couple of tables outside on the street. Inside it is split over two levels, downstairs with the bar as you enter and upstairs which didn’t seem to be open - got the impression it may be a restaurant area (toilets are up here). The decor carries a trendy/modern feel, multi coloured battenburg tiles, sunken floor area, micture of wooden chairs/tables and soft poofs, 6 or so tall stools positioned in front of the bar. The place was pretty busy with a largely youngish crowd both inside and out. 6 beers on tap and a bottled list of around 100. See the chalk board on the left as you enter for specials and one off’s. Good choice of Belgian stuff, lots of local micros, and the likes of Mikkeller Black on tap although I had hoped for something more interesting from Struise but just the easy to get stuff available in bottle. Service was great here, at the bar during our visit (not sure if they have table staff later in the evening?). The bar man was happy to chat beer between serving and made suggestions for us. A specialist beer bar in Belgium with a youngish feel to it - reccomended.

Excellent beer list (also Struise Brouwers and Alvinne) Small place, strange atmosphere.

Nice bar in the center of the down. Good selection of beer from Belgium and some others countries like Danemark and Holland. Nice decoration, and good music selection.

Excellent selection of beer and a supporter of local micros which is to be commended.Also some over-priced beer-geek nonsense from further afield. No table service and no apology whe the barman lost half my beer because he didn’t have a glass handy. Hence low marks for service. As for atmosphere, think seedy nightclub. Despite the downsides, well worth a visit for the unusual beers. By way of a bonus, the young lady opposite me wasn’t wearing any knickers and was sat with her legs open.

A lovely beer bar in the city. Very detailed and well explained beer list/menu card in 4 languages. Highly knowledgeable staff. Do take the time to discuss your tastes to have some good recommendations. Good music to go with your beer too. A good selection of local craft beers.

Hip sort of place, all kinds of beerlovers seem to come here to enjoy a small but fascinating range of unusual draft craft beers - including a lot of higher ABV stuff and several de Struise - and some cool music.
