My 999th place rating. Fantastic atmosphere here - friendly and welcoming, like drinking with your old school buddies. Amazing architecture, and the waals are covered with blackboards that show the large tap list and the extensive bottle list, including all (yes, all) the Trappists. Food is very tasty, especially the ribs, and the portions are huge. Beyond all that, prices are low for the area. What’s not to like? Thanks, kraddel, for taking me here!

Gollem looks like an old and rather grand brown café but apparently it opened relatively recently. There are some nice old fashioned touches such as the interesting ceilings and a magnificent chandelier on a level with a spindly little balcony which has a single table for six people. They have 30 beers on tap, including their own blond one, and a long bottle list. Despite that I was stuck for what to have so I asked for one of my favourites which wasn’t listed - a small bottle of 3 Fonteinen kriek. It was of course delicious but the mark up on the price verged on the criminal. The prices for other beers, particularly the draught ones, were more reasonable. The service was friendly enough but very slow. (Visited 28 June 2013).

We (me & Loz) visited here on Friday 7th February 2014, we also visited again on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th February, this was Loz’s favourite bar of the weekend. Like the Bierhuyske around the corner this is another great addition to the Antwerp beer scene that has popped up since I was last here approx’ 3-4 years ago. The tap choice is huge with approx’ 30+ beers on tap, there is also a very large bottled list I had a De Molen Stout, Rasputin I think. What I liked about this place in particular was that in terms of seating it is spacious, I didn’t feel cramped like I tend to find in many other bars like Paters or Kulminator for instance. The staff were attentive, smiley and knowledgable and worked very hard. As you enter there are tables either side there is a small seating area upstairs and further seating at a raised area to the right and rear of the bar. Not sure what this place was previously but it is a nice building and makes a very good bar. Ok so the beer choice maybe isn’t quite at the lofty heights of the two best specialist beer bars here but it is still a fantastic range and would certainly please even the most demanding beer afficiendo who visits. Really liked this place.

Nice interior, it must be a cosy place in the winter, but smelly. With 30 taps and 100s of bottles, this is surely a good place to stop for a beer, although there is nothing surprising; also, the list on the wall is well organized!

This place doesn’t need the spam reviews. It can stand on its own. Gollem’s a restaurant/bar located in a touristy part of Antwerp. Clean, sleek ambiance. There’s about 25 taps plus 150 or so bottles. There’s plenty of your standard Belgian offerings, but the list is curated to include some nice stuff too. I can’t complain when St Bernardus Abt 12 is on tap for a good price. The food is definitely worth trying. My portion of ribs could have served a family of 4. Prices were quite good considering the location. The service was better than average for Belgium. Overall, this would be a good spot to grab lunch if you’re on a crawl through Antwerp. Recommended.

Nice to sit outside and take in the city hall and Grotemarkt. They have a pretty interesting list with some rarities. Not very geeky, with lots of normal folks hanging outside drinking or eating. I liked it.

Great little place with a solid taplist and very nice bottle selection including quite a few lambics (nothing crazy though). Service was spectacular and the outside deck was wonderful. Food menu is mostly appetizers, with a few vegetarian (but no vegan) options. Definitely worth a stop when in Antwerp.

Solid little beer bar located in central Antwerp. The interior is fairly modern and dark. The selection is good, but not great. They have a fairly comprehensive tap and bottle selection with no particular stand-outs or beers I had not seen elsewhere. Saying that there was still plenty of good stuff for me to drink and re-visit. Service was friendly and very attentive by Belgian standards. Food was also rather good if a little pricey. Much better opening hours than Kulminator so if you’re in Antwerp I’m sure you’ll find yourself here. A decent stop.

Found in central Antwerp. Quite nice place with indoor- and outdoor-section. Lots of belgian beer but nothing really rare. Around 20 taps and lots of bottles. Worth a visit.

Central but not too touristy, decent selection of 30 draft beers. Prices OK.
