Visited on a Saturday night when the place was packed, but lovely atmosphere in a wood-ornamented, medieval-inspired cellar, with decent selection; the bartender, an Italian, was a very friendly guy who gave us one suggestion after another including some rare Italian beers from breweries I never even heard of. Nice surprise, but I can imagine this being more agreeable an environment when itís less crowded, as it was quite damp and hot at the time. Will go back here next time Iím in Bruges.
A bit hard to find if you donít know the address. After going downstairs, I discover a beautiful cellar. A must-see. Candelabrums between arches. Itís like a bar in the attic of a Trappist church. Candletick on woody tables. I was there at 7pm. Just a few people nearby, so I was able to fully appreciate the atmosphere. Friendly knowledgeable barman. Impressive beer menu (mostly belgian of course with an interesting selection of lambic). Good value. Wow, a great experience to conclude this trip in Brugge.
stella owned chain bar with mostly macro stuff on tap with a fe winteresting specials and bottles. Rammed, obviously very popular with tourists (in all the guidebooks). Sticky and hot, not my favourite place but worth a quick look.
Instead of going back to the hotel after our visit to Cambrinus, we went here, as one of the staff members recommended when Cambrinus closed for the day. This place was rather nice, being in a cellar which gave it a kind of medieval feeling. At the same time it was rather comfortable, and quite crowded too, although getting emptier around midnight. This place seemed to stay open until very late. Great selection of beers, with some of the "most evident" ones around, but also a bunch of quite interesting never heard of things. Didnít see any food list etc at this time of the day.
Came here after we finished up at íT Brugs Beertje being one of the few places still accepting patrons at 230 in the morning. We were lead here by the Philadelphians and in two short hours achieved oblivion. Itís a warm and traditional cellar bar with a fine selection of bottles and taps. We stuck in here until about 430 then stumbled home. The overall standard of bars in Brugges really is excellent.
A surprising Belgian embodiment of the very old and traditional (medieval vault, convivial atmosphere, trappists & classic regional brews on tap) organically merging with new quality additions on the EU and US brewing scene. Particularly nice selection of De Molen bottles and occasional pop-up taps. Fair value considering location and selection, esp. compared to other higher-profile bars on both sides of the Atlantic (majority of beers to be had under Ä5), knowledgeable and approachable staff. - I was also very surprised to learn visiting their website www.letrappiste.com/ that this is in fact a affiliate branch of an original UK bar. Brave New upside-down beer World - not the first succesful instance where foreigners teach the Belgian bar scene how to get rid of its chauvinism and that that "plus est en lui".
Fun and lively big cellar style bar that gets quite busy like most of the good places in Brugge. The tap and bottle selections have some great and interesting stuff like good Struises and also some non-Belgian beers. Service is good and the prices are reasonable.
