Wow, this is an original place. The entrance door (if we can call it an entrance door) is not easy to spot because the bar is actually a basement, almost underground. The interior is surreal. I have never been in beer with a cavernous setting like this one. Warm, inviting, yet dark and almost creepy, full of memorabilia, a gramophone here, scary puppets there, old bottles everywhere, bunch of old stuff. Furniture is from another era completely. A baby foot table. Surprisingly for a Bruges bar, this one seems to be attracting mostly locals. Not a touristy place it appears. Beer list is nothing to brag about. Limited tap-list (4 of them) with only Taras Boulba that was interesting. Typical Belgian Flemish bottle list. Plenty of quality beers but nothing for the beer hunter. However this is not the place to discover a beer and certainly not to rate one. Here you want to discover the place, not the beer, so you sit down with a personal favorite (in my case Orval in proper glassware) and just look around in amazement. A unique place. I highly recommend going there early to be in an empty bar and really get the full effect of this unique place.

Like entering a hole in the street - narrow entrance, however, it widens up inside. Rather good beer menu and cosy atmosphere, but unfortunately too much cigarette smoke (visited with Elsa and Finn, 3rd May 2011).

Popped into here after an early evening few at the Little Brugge Bear. Daisyís place was getting too busy (it was the night before the 3rd Brugge Beer Fest, 13 Nov 09). Been back a few times since I wrote all this........... ít Poatersgat (Priestís Hole) is currently the in place for the young upwardly mobile of Brugge and a very popular late night drinking joint. I believe it is owned and fronted by the same guy who first opened De Zolder across the road some years back. He moved here to expand, this being bigger than De Zolder. I have been in here before, but it was with a stag party and I was a little tired and confused by the time we reached here and was therefore unable to review it then! As you step down into the bar you see it is a lot larger than it appears from the street, it goes back and widens out a long way. This is a true celler bar, you are underground and thick columns hold the ceiling at bay, hops are festooned between the columns giving it a pleasant beery feel. Mixed selection of chairs and tables, standing by the bar too. Relaxed, informal and friendly, that covers customers and staff. When quiet it is table service, that isnít very often by all accounts, so bar service is what we used on our visit, canít remember who or why they served me the first time I went. Music is varied and at times loud, but it is full of íwell off student typesí who obviously prefer their music louder than an old fart like me. Old farts are welcome though. Good selection of beers, is there a bar in Brugge that hasnít got a good selection? I seem to think there were 5 taps and a host of bottles to choose from, we stayed by the bar and only drank from the fonts.

A larger, atmospheric cellar pub across the street from Zolder. The smart beer list has plenty of quality, including serious lambics. Co-owner Rinus said that they may have to re-vamp the list as some things arenít selling... I hope the quantity and quality will persevere. With some patience this will become a regular must-visit for beer geeks visiting Brugge, but the place isnít well known yet. Ate a simple spaghetti bolo, could have been microwaved for all I know but it was one of the best Iíve had in Belgium. Nice place to kill a lot of time. Tons of space in there too.

A great addition to the beer scene in Brugge. Itís a rather atmospheric (although a bit dark) cellar bar with a l good range of quality beers on tap and some decent bottled beers. The guy who served me seemed to be friendly and knowledgeable. I was rather impressed with this place.

Nice cellar location, although I always bang my head when leaving. Decent selection and prices on the lower side for central Bruges. Might be a bit dingy for some, but I like it.

Nice atmosphere down in a cellar. Not a bad selection, but not good either. Worth a visit for the nice atmosphere, the decently priced beers, the good service and the general cozy ambiance of the place.

Very nice place, good beer menu, no service, you must order at the bar, mostly young people around. Little noisy, little dark but pleasant atmosphere.

Nice semi-dark cellar at the Vlamingstraat. Great atmosphere, lots of students mixed with some beer enthusiasts.
Service is at the bar, staff is rather knowledgeable but not too creative. Selection is more than decent.
Good place to hang out with locals and have a few nice brews.
