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!

Busy old art nouveau bar with really tasty fresh omelettes and their own fruit beers, full of locals and definitely worth a trip.
