This place is located in the ‘lijnwaadmarkt’, a 3 min walk from the Cathedral. We had a few drinks on the backyard terrace, very calm and a nice atmosphere. A lovely cozy place with nice vibes. A superb service!!

Atmosphere and waiters are very nice. They have good cocktails (not only the standard ones) and you can sit outside in the front or the back. Also inside it is a very nice atmosphere at a very nice location! Extremely friendly waiters, extremely good cocktails!...More
