There's a skeleton in a glass coffin which doubles as a table for patron's drinks. It has black lights and doesn't take itself too seriously. It's a bit kitschy but it's fun. It's one of my favorite bars in town. Bartenders are always good, plenty...More

Really unique place, all gothic and with a macabre theme. Never seen a place like this before. Service great, reasonably priced for a themed bar and decorated great! Wreaths, Coffins and skeletons everywhere. We sat round a coffin and had beers. Toilets a bit grim...More

It's a good place where you can spend some hours with your friends! The cocktails are so good! To try absolutely if you are in Bruxelles. It's near the Grand Place! :)

Dark, dark, dark, skulls and crossbones, skull-shaped mugs and death-themed drinks. What to expect from a place like Le Cercueil ("the coffin")? This is a great little place to sip a few exotic (and exotically-priced) local brews in a surreal decor. Morbid but not evil....More

This is a very different pub with coffins and skeletons etc, worth a visit. Very dark inside and open and closed coffins on display, its very strange indeed.

First thing is that if your a Westvleteren fan they have it here in a bottle, although expensive, but you can have a rare beer...About 12 or so beers on tap to choose from.. Definitely a very unique place if your interested in trying a...More

This place exists since a long time and despite many earlier visits I like to come back occasionally. They offer a good choice of beers and cocktails, all in an original and spooky interior, themed on death with skeletons, coffins and stuff. It does not...More
