Enjoyable mix of people, drinks music and atmospheres. Seems to cater to most tastes. Drinks priced pretty near average for Brussels.

Multicultural people, ethnic music, one of the best Mojito and other cocktails. Party till dawn. Must for international people.

It's the first time a bar owner talks to me like some kind of mafia. I will never go back to this place mostly because of his attitude... Expensive place with a very very poor customer service...

We saw the board up for 3 for 2 on Mojitos so decided to try this place out. Its location is fantastic, just off the Grand' Place. With the offer, three Mojitos worked out at €5 each! There are lots of tables on the pavement...More
