Very nice belgian pub with a history and really huge selection of almost all belgian beers. You can choose not only by colour or make, but also by alcohol content, which is very helpful. I would give 5 star review, but we hadn't good experience with waiter who was a bit cold to us.

Mannequins hanging as decor , the most amazing eclectic mix of objects on the walls & ceiling. It's a feast for the eyes taking it all in. It takes ages going to the loo as there's so much to see on the way!Easy popular jazz playing, very comfortable & relaxing atmosphere. Catering mainly for beer lovers with many, many beers... More

This place could be a tourist trap as it is located in front of to the Manneken Pis (the little boy fountain sculpture that is the symbol of Brussels). However this is one of the best bar in Brussels if you like beers and the headquarter of one of the oldest beer guilds (kind of beer drinker union) Indeed they... More

My wife and I visited this pub a couple of times over our weekend trip. The location is really fun since it is located right next to the famous Mannekin Pis (which makes for excellent people watching). All of the servers were extremely knowledgable of the beers, and servers seemed to take pride in their beer knowledge. Every beer recommendation... More

We enjoyed a few beers here and there is a great selection! The inside of this place is unusual and really quirky! We loved it! The waitress was very friendly and recommended beers to try as well. Located just opposite mannekin pis but prices are reasonable! A place you should definitely try and visit when in Brussels!

The atmosphere makes this place worth a stop for a drink. They have lots of old drawings and cartoons of Mannequin Pis and also puppets and random, neat stuff. They have a great beer menu, although not really more to offer than other beer places nearby. We tried the Trappist cheese and it was good and also the kip kap,... More

I am not a beer drinker. I drink beer only a few times a year when I am required to drink beer. As extensive as their beer menu might be here, this review comes from someone who doesn't drink beer. We came here for what I thought was dinner. I glanced at his phone on Yelp, and all I saw... More

We had seen the reviews for Poechenellekelder before going to Brussels so we were already aware of the glowing reputation it had but my expectations were surpassed and then some. We came for drinks on our final night and we were immediately in awe of the character of the place. Many little figures and ornaments dotted around and pictures on... More
