Three generations of one family were playing music the night we were there. Sublime. Cosy place, just pick up a beer, sit back, relax and enjoy the music. Great place to be in.

A nice place to enjoy contemporary jazz and drink some beers. For those who still smoke you can do it outside the cozy bar. Nice bartenders. I enjoyed my nights there during my recent holidays in Belgium. Ghent is fabulous!

Live concerts & jams, high quality music, nice atmosphere, friendly bartenders. During concerts they expect you to shut up and listen, so this is a place for music lovers. If you want to chatter away with your friends and just want some background music, go...More

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.

Good for a few bears. It wasn't crowded when we were in but it was the middle of the afternoon. Nice atmosphere. Cute pup welcomed us.

We stumbled across this place after getting sick of the bad pop music playing in the bar up the road. It was gypsy guitar night and an amazing violin, guitar, bass trio were playing. It was such a great night. You could tell everybody there...More
