There are a few seats outside that are fabulous if you can get them. The street is quite busy and makes for good people-watching.

Centrally located with tons of character and history, this crowded, slightly run down art nouveau classic oozes charm. Excellent selection of local beers on tap, only a few snacks available to eat. Very popular with locals as well as tourists. Don't miss!

They have a big beer selection (Who doesnt in Belgium) and its an interesting pub but all beers are over 5e each on draft for the smallest quantity. No wifi (Really in this day and age?) Head to Delirium for better prices and house beers...More
