This was a nice friendly bar with a good variety of beers and wines to choose from. The bar was a little small however I didn’t feel overcrowded just cozy. Entrance is down a little alley just before the bridge. Definitely go again.

I was here few times with my friend, but I do not like the place. The beer offer is nothing special, and it is always super-full.

Fantastic music, the place goes silent for the performers, there are artists doing sketching, it's Belgium so obviously the beer is top notch and you will more than likely make a friend here because the Belgians are super friendly and this is where some of...More

Second year in a row that we've enjoyed an evening in this great little venue. The live jazz acts are excellent and the notice asks people to be completely quiet during the concerts, which is good because you come here to really appreciate the musicians...More
