Overview
More
The Brugse Gin Club Gin Bar & Store (BGC - Bruges Gin Club) offers the largest selection of gins in Bruges and the wide surroundings. Over 400 different gins are served in a small bar hidden in the heart of the historic centre between the Fish Market and the Botanic Gardens. The bar is only open during weekends from Friday to Sunday from 6pm and during school holidays. Owner-ginologist Edward welcomes you in the cozyiness of his kitchen and provides you with a personalized table service. If you get in, that is, because the door is closed and knocking is obligatory. The bar can accomodate only 20-odd patrons and strictly operates on a first come, first seated principe. Bookings are not accepted. Locals as well as visitors from all over the world come to the bar to escape the rush of touristic Bruges and relax in the laid back atmosphere garnished with classic and contemporary jazz.

This place was incredible. The owner knew everything to know about gin and also let us into the secret of gin bars in our home town. We were in Bruges two nights and visited here both nights. Highly recommended!

We strongly believe there is a gin for everyone and have converted many who believed they didn't like gin. Thanks for your very kind words and we hope to see you again soon.

Thanks for your visit and for reviewing the experience. When you were visiting we served 390 different gins rather than guns, although some of our gins are quite explosive.

Thanks for your review. I'd like to point out, however, that we serve the widest selection of gins in Bruges at the cheapest price. And a double shot is still a double shot in our bar, compared to many other places.
