Loved this bar in the centre of Brussels. It's super quirky and had a huge range of beers on offer. Didn't eat but the food looked good if you want a snack or lunch with your beer.

Really good bar close to Mannekin Pis. Great for beers but also the wine is very good too! Friendly staff make it a must stop on a walk of the city

This a quirky bar with some cool art like a gnome peeping out a toilet. The selection of beer is vast and the atmosphere is lovely! A nice break once you have admired the Mannekin Pis just next door.

Went with a few colleagues from work to sample the selection of beers. They had more than a hundred (?) different beers available, and all categorized by type on the menu and while a bit pricey, not out of whack for downtown Brussels. The decor was very eclectic, reflecting the not well known local Brussels history of marionette puppet shows.... More

Just try to find it hidden behind a minuscule corridor, and sample a genuine local beer (sometimes a bit acidic, like the typical lambic gueze). they also have a nice little traditional cherry liqueur, something you rarely find in Brussels.

I've had dreams like this place and I'm not always certain I enjoyed them (probably too much cheese), but I am sure this bar was a never ending visual feast. I'll start with the bad - we were a bit squashed. It felt like the bar was full of tourists - like us, but because of this, I felt it... More

We have been here a few times. Always sit outside & watch people watching the Manneken Pis. It is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours of the day while enjoying great beer. The food smells great but we have never eaten here as I think of it as more of a bar, not a restaurant. Friendly staff.

This is an absolutely beautiful place, there is a wide selection of bottled beers for a reasonable price, a couple of things to eat (I would not really go there to eat, as they really aim to be a bar and not a restaurant) the staff is really nice and friendly. Really loved the place.

Thank Liam M
