Well located just a few steps away from Palais des Beaux-Arts and not too far from the train station. I went on a Saturday around 7:30 p.m. It was crowded, but I still managed to get a place at the beer. Nice ambiance, not too loud. Service was friendly. One of the guy who worked there was also working at L’Abbaye des Saveurs earlier in the day. The staff seems knowledgeable about beer. Tap selection isn’t huge, but the quality is there... Saison Dupont bio, Moinette bio and Black Albert were the highlights along some French micros. Black Albert was available is 12,5 cl, which was nice. Small bottle selection. Prices were good (3,5 Euros for 25 cl of Saison Dupont bio or Moinette bio). Not on the level of La Capsule, but definitely one of the best place in Lille for a good beer.

Good concert/punk bar in Lille with a correct selection tap/bottles, but too Noisy. Staff kind as can be.

Eat&drink place. The food is pretty good and it becomes awesome when you add some really nice beers on tap (Hardcore IPA, Psychedelia, 5 AM, Moinette). Perfect for lunch time, cosy and cheap.

Nice place to eat and drink something. The food is pretty good. Also some very nice beers from tap. I had Brewdog 5AM for 3.50€. Nice prices! Friendly staff also.

Un lieu unique sur Lille ou on peut mélanger d’excellentes bières et de bons concerts ! La carte des bières bouteille paraît énorme car affichée sur des tableaux au dessus du bar. Les conseils sont parfois absents ;) Ce que j’aime surtout : y manger le midi les succulents plats à la bière du chef et les frites et mayonnaise maison ! Le tout avec une bonne tiote bière !

Another new beer bar/resto in Lille with a cozy atmosphere. Good selection of beers on tap - 8 and numerous ones on the bottle. The food is really good and I felt it absolute value for money for the quality and price.

A place with 8 beers on taps. You can find some beer from Belgium and France. Very noisy place when there is a concert. The beer selection is fine. I recommended it for the lunch, good and not expensive.

A new beer restaurant in Lille with a nice selection of craft beers on tap (8) and bottles. Food is home made with beers, a good point. Much of the evening concerts are held, rock and jazzy drinking a good beer. A place to try if you’re in Lille!

visited in February 2012. We had lunch here, which consisted of a starter and a main dish (don’t say entrée in French, entrée means starter!). Home made foie gras which was made with a peated whiskey, very good! Also oeuf cocotte, with bacon and blue cheese, simple but good. Main course was a Welsh, something totally new for me. It was very good, but really heavy with all the melted cheese. I was glad I could trade half of it for my wife’s fish. Which was also very good. Accompanied by home made fries and home made mayonnaise or a boiled potato with a nice herb cream sauce. There was a good selection of beers on draft as well as a lot of local bottles. Terroir, that’s what it’s all about, right? I even added some new beers to ratebeer, which I had here. If you know that the owner is the same of La Capsule, then you know the beer selection will be good. Oh, and did I mention the price? Very modest pricing for a good lunch, it’s typical French, but it still manages to surprise me every time. I think one of the best cheap eats in the whole city.
