Visited Friday 17th October 2014, around 10/10.30pm.
Underground cellar bar, just outside the centre, 3 to 5 minutes walk from a number of other top 10 Brugge venues.
The place wasn’t overly packed and to my surprise we bagged a large bench to ourselves.
Table service was decent enough and the guy was happy to give reccomendations.
We didn’t eat here but had some snacks of olives and meats.
Selection was decent enough, the non Belgian offerings were nothing rare for me so I just caught up on a few Belgian beers I’d had before but never rated.
Overall a decent bar with a nice feel but if your time was limited in Brugge this would probably just miss the cut for me when putting together a top 5.

Re-visited here Sat 18th October 2014 Fin, Loz, Nick, Anna and kids We’ve been here regularly over the last 12-18 months, however must say we were a little disappointed with the service on this occasion. I am guessing that we arrived shortly after it opened along with a couple and a young chap. The barman who clearly wasn’t quite ready to open spent the next 8-10 mins busying himself by putting out bar towels, sorting glasses etc, saying nothing saving for the odd scowl to all of us waiting, why he didn’t open a few minutes later or why he didn’t just apologise or at least engage in some conversation with us I don’t know, but he chose to walk around with a face like a smacked arse. On the other hand the beer choice is still good, I had an excellent Troubadour Magma Triple yeast, the service when it arrived was good and 1970’s musical backdrop good fun to guess, just think the barman needs to lightn up a little, have marked score down a little to reflect this. Btw the whole group felt the same about the barman. We visited here on Friday 21st June 2013 I have to say that I was impressed. This is a cellar bar and the brick vaulted ceiling with pillars to the floor was stunning, toilets, bar in fact everywhere looked very very smart. Was quite when we arrived but then a group of 8-10 came in to compliment the 3-4 of us already there. The beer list is fine but not exceptional however there is clearly some mileage in enquiring about beers as I had a Struise beer not listed. The tap list will probably be the draw for the Belgian market as quite unusually there are a number of foreign beers such as Marble, Brewdog and Nogne I recall on tap. As you enter this place the bar is on the right and is a long rectangular bar with perhaps 10-12 stools set up to it. Prices seemed to be on a par with other bars for bottles, perhaps a bit pricy for some of the foreign tap beers though I guess not too dissimilar to other specialist beer bars offering a similar selection, there is also a loyalty system for tap beers with a card to stamp which when full entitles you to a free beer from the tap only. This place is sure to get better and better and it is nice to see some of the more established places in this small city get some serious competition, however one would imagine that with the sheer level of tourism the city will easily cope with a new venture such as this. 80

This place felt really weird when we got here. A quite good beer menu and friendly service, but when we came down in the basement they were playing loud 90s music from a TV behind the bar, showing music videos with Bloodhound Gang and Aqua. Lots of neon signs all around. The cellar lokos great, but the atmosphere was nothing I liked. Don’t know if we managed to be here during some AW or something.

Very cozy place, I just love old cellars. Extensive menu, also foreign stuff, which is good to attract some Belgian beer geeks. Depending on what you pick, might be a bit expensive. Very knowledgeable and friendly bar tender. The fact that he’s Italian, changes the atmosphere from "Belgian" bar rather into "international" bar. I have no problem with that, but maybe tourist would rather seek out a more typical Belgian place? Anyway, plenty of those already, right? ;-) Keep up the good work guys!

The most beautiful cellar I have seen. Clean, modern and spacious place (sounds contradictory if you know it’s a gothic cellar) . Friendly and good informed staff. The beer selection is varied, also international beers. I hope there is enough rotation in the selection to keep it interesting for regular visitors.

This is one of the best bar I have ever visited! Hiding deep within a 13th Century cellar in Bruges lies a bar with biggest quality selection of beers and the best Trappist beers available including the coveted Westvleteren 12: the worlds best beer.

Located in a large, vaulted cellar in one of the lanes close to the Market, this place is rather new and modern in the good sense of the word. It features a high level of service and opens on days on which it is officially closed (Mondays), too. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and they do samples (rather large) at a fixed rate. The selection is impressive: 15 taps with decent Belgian and other European beers, and a hundred bottles of good beer, including W XII. Not expensive as such. Will gladly come back again.

2014.06 - bezoek met de Gentse Biervereniging - prachtig etablissement verscholen achter een ’onnozele’ ingang. Mooie overzichtelijke bierkaart (inheems en uitheems, tal van bierstijlen). Vriendelijke en kundige barman.
