Re-rate: this time I was here on a winter noon. The place was almost empty. Now it was a lot better than last time, I got to see the big menu and it had tons of great stuff. Service is still a bit annoying but at least someone pays attention to you. Prices a quite high for some of the beers. It’s a good place, just never come here on busy times! 3/6/14/-/5/16 /./././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././././ It’s a rainy summer Friday noon in Brussels. I have about an hour and a half left before I have to catch a bus. I say to myself ’’I gotta go to the Delirium Cafe, I’ve heard so many great things about that place’’. Well, it was quite hard to find without a good map of Brussels but I’m finally here - I go inside and at the entrance I already start to hear very loud rock music - ’’well, at least they have 2004 beers’’. I go downstairs and the place is so packed with young students and backpackers it’s difficult even to find a place to stand. It’s really smoky, and I feel like I’m standing inside the biggest ashtray in the world. I try to pick up a menu but they’re all on tables right now, I wait for another 15 minutes (standing all this time) and finally get my hands on this book. Very soon I give it up since there are about 4 people standing beside me just waiting for me to finish and hand them the menu. I’m going to the bar and try to order one of the beers but the bartender is too busy for me. I go upstairs thinking maybe I should sit over there, but no waiter comes up. I’m gonna drink my beer in another place. At least I got a pretty photo of beer bottles. I’m going to Belgium again soon, and I’ll try this place again, hoping things will be slightly better 1/1/13/-/-/3

Aye, what to say about this place. I’m glad I finally went, because it is a landmark in the beer world. That being said, it’s pretty much a shit cafe I’d be happy never to return to again. The atmosphere is gross even when it isn’t busy (hot, musty, smelly and dirty). Service is extremely uninterested at best, prices are high and selection is boring. Sooo, maybe finish off your evening sharing a few pints with a bachelor party after going to the real (beer geek) world class bar in Brussels. Hurm hurm.

Didnt like this place to much. Way to crowded, hot and noisy in the evenings, but ok to visit for some ticks in the afternoon just after opening time. About 30 beers on tap, ranging from poor to good in quality. Most wellkept, but served much to cold and rather overcarbonated. Possible to buy 16cl samplers for 2€. Service was fine.

Visited in 2011. Very crowded all evening but we managed to get a space at the bar. Service was quite fast despite the crowd. Wide selection of beers.

... and very quickly checked out. This place is simply some bloody hell on wheels. You need to use both elbows quite effectively to get in, and once you are there, no one notices you, but that comes hardly as a surprise as the noise of muzak is positively deafening. The temperature inside is 37 degrees, as hordes of more-than-merry youngies and tourists from all over the world have gathered here, presumably with the wacky view to tasting all the 2000-odd beers on offer (no time to check if that is true). No food except for nibbles. Not cheap, and they probably know it. I hurried, ehm... stormed my way out with a strong resolution never to return.

If you want more calmness - go the the "Hoppy Loft", upper floor. Service is super when it’s not crowded, very good when it is. Exhaustive bottle list as can be expected. Prices are very good.

Went several times during my erasmus at Belgium. Perfect place to take visits or to get to now new people (mostly tourist, you wont find lost of belgians). Really good ambiance.
