If you want a fantastic beer selection in a cozy, charming and very festively decorated for Christmas place, then you must pop in. It is conveniently located across from Mannekin Pis. There were easily 100 beers on offer along with very light nibbles (cheese, charcuterie). Don't plan on dinner- you come here for beer and ambiance.

Despite visiting Brussels many times had sadly not discovered this truly magnificent place adjacent to the Manneken Pis . What to drink from the extensive list ? The ones I have never had the opportunity to have tried before of course . Expertly and professionally served by... More

A small bar that packs a big punch. Stopped here on an impromptu refreshment requirement after taking a few pictures of the Manneken Pis. After perusing the menu, I settled on a blackcurrant beer and I was absolutely NOT disappointed, satisfied immensely enjoyable by my choice of cold, zingy refreshment. The joys kept on coming with a peach beer too,... More

Good beer in a quirky surrounding. Stumbled upon by accident looking for the Mannequin Pis (underwhelming!)

We went there looking for manneken pis, which btw is nothing great and can be easily skipped. However, this place, although small, has great collection of beers. Waiters and bartenders are helpful and have knowledge of what they are selling. On a sunny clear day, this place is good to chill.

Place has a nice decor with various puppets hanging on the walls. There is a menu with several great belgian beers and the service is also very good! Location? Just in front of the manneken pis. Definitely worth the visit.

Seated outside. Great service good value and relaxing. A saxophone player was allowed to entertain us. The inside (it was too hot to be in)... More

We sat outside at this one. It was a great night outside. The service was typically slow, but the beers were plentiful. We had a cheese tray which was good. There was a meat on top looked and tasted like raw bacon. I would also say this is a good people watching place as it is right next to the... More
