Well sounded good by the reviews and summary, arrived decor is to be expected nice to be fair. Ordered two coctails very disappointing I could only describe this as tropical juice with ice, I ordered a rum coctail and my partner ordered a vodka based...More

Liking bars that are a little out of the ordinary, and liking rock/metal, we sought out this place after seeing it mentioned on Trip Advisor. The passageway you walk down to reach the bar smells a bit, which is not the best welcome, but sadly...More

My friend and I found this place by accident, just a minute away from Grand Place and boy were we happy! Dark and playing all of our favourite rock music, with a great selection of cocktails. Cash only though, people!!

A creepy little place just of grand place, tables are coffins, drinks are named after dead things. Very small inside but definitely worth a visit. Loved the music and atmosphere

A colleague took me to this little bar. The decor leaves you in no doubt you are in Goth Centraal! skeletons, coffins, black walls and rock music. And it is just off of the Grote Markt in the city centre. A reasonable selection of beers...More

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
