Still has the terrace and all the usual bare-bones modern charm of the Frederic Nicolay bars, if you find that sort of thing charming. But a summer visit found that it had dropped a few local beers for Nicolay’s house Volga beers made by St-Feuillien, and not so interesting ones at that. Service at the bar, which is only as fast as the number of people in front of you. If Moeder Lambic is closed and you want some local flavor, you’re better off at the nearby Brumaire.

Following a schoolboy error (we hadn’t realised that Moeder Lambic didn’t open until 4pm) we visited here Saturday 17th December 2011. Another bar from the great Joe Stange book ’Around Brussels in 80 Beers’ I guess if it wasn’t for that book we’d have never got here. A large, spacy place, modern and a little trendy. There were a number of young families when we were here, and most folk seemed to be having a good time. Beer choice was pretty decent if a little limited, I think that I had something from Brasserie de La Senne. This is a little way out from the centre but if you are intrepid walkers like me and Loz then it will not pose any problems. Not my favourite bar in Brussels by a long stretch but I would certainly be back in there if nearby in the future.
