The Backdoor is now what the Defoo used to be: a cosy bar with nice beer selection and relaxed atmosphere. The Defoo is now a bar like any other, with limited beer selection, apart from the list of Dolle beers. Usually there is a bunch of young kids or students with popped collars that think they own the place. This creates a bit of a nervous atmosphere, which one time even turned into a small fight over a chair. The real charm is to be found across the street, in the Backdoor. If it’s open of course.
MESSAGE FOR FOREIGNERS VISITING GENT: if you read this, you’re probably planning a visit to Belgium, and Gent in particular. I’m always interested to get to know other ratebeerians, and if you come from an interesting country, we can maybe to an in person beer trade? Contact me!
