Average sized cafe bar on the ground floor just a short walk north of the main square, and the mini bar-filled square behind that. Has an extensive beer menu with plenty of bottles and a few taps, one of which had a Christmas beer available during my visit. A little simplistic with its look, it does however get the lighting right and it’s fairly atmospheric for it with a few seats by the large windows either side of the central doorway, and a more darker bar feel the further back you venture.

Pretty decent bar in Bruges centre. About a 100 different beers, though mainly the regular Belgian ones. Not a single new tick for me, but when you haven’t tried a lot of Belgian beers this bar is as good as any. Free wifi is plus, surprisingly enough this is not the case in most pubs.
A big beer menu, but not too many special or rare stuff. Managed to get two new ticks though. Good for tourists or foreign ratebeerians looking for a place to get some more Belgian ticks. Weird atmosphere inside, you have to make your own ambiance. :p
A surprise find when we were going to go to the nightclub in the next street then changed our minds, advertising over 100 different beers

We visited here on Thursday 3rd October 2013 we quite by chance bumped into Chris, Joe & Bob the Oxford contingent who always come to Merton Beer Festival. There seemed to be a decent choice of 100+ beers I had De Dolle Dulle Teve, Loz had Orval. We hardly really ventured inside as the weather was great but it looked fine. This bar appears a little more functional than many but it was very reasonably priced, closed to the centre and just a few doors along from La Trappist cellar bar. I liked this place, we’ve been here before I’m sure but yes it is friendly, reasonably priced and well situated.
Not sure what this is doing on ratebeer and other beer related resources. Strategically located near the heart of the touristy Brugge, a few boring taps (and when I say boring, I mean Leffe-boring) and a bottle selection that is at best minimal for any place serving beer in Belgium. 100 bottles or so, but what beer bar in Belgium doesn’t have that many bottles. I mean, even a family restaurant in Belgium has 50 beer bottles on the menu. Interior is not even nice and looks like a any dark local pub not so well maintained. not even tourist-friendly. A few chairs and tables outside act as some kind of patio. To avoid.
