Tom was very friendly and served me my first beer on arrival to Brugge. A good introduction to the warm and hospitable nature of the locals. Interesting collection of record sleeves on the wall. Who is Eddie Wally?

Love this bar. Great music from 60s through to 80s with walls covered in album covers. Tom who runs the bar is very knowledgeable about beer & music. Friendly locals & a budgie who loves his bells!

If walking to Ribs 'n' Beer you'll pass this cosy little bar. Standing in the shadow of Sint Jakobs you may well pass by without noticing this bar. Inside the bar has a homely feel. Two walls are decorated with album covers and the furniture...More
