This is a famous bar in Brussels. The decoration is composed by coffins, skulls, skeletons... Don't forget to try the beer inside a skull cup. It is a little bit expensive, when compared to other pubs in Brussels, but it is a very nice place.

This is one pub i always look forward to visiting on any holiday to Brussels as I love how unique this pub is. Looking at the window were you will find skulls,Dracula and bats waving at you and on entering the pub it takes your eyes a little time to adjust to the darkness but once they do you can... More

A cool bar, slightly tired but a fun a no bizarre place. They have many different beers and cocktails to try including a rum based beer. Coffins, skeletons and very dark inside - playing rock music to the masses.

It is 50 meters away from the Grand Place but somehow it feels underground and even unknown. After a narrow corridor you end up in this very dark bar with skulls, bones, and metal music. The staff is really nice, an interesting contrast to the place! I've visited a couple times and I remember once seeing an extra room open,... More

I loved it. :) Nice ambiance, if you like these kinds of things. Good selection of beer (of course, it is Belgium), but also coctails and shots etc. Full of skeletons, skulls, neon lights, coffins (hence the name), just halloween everyday. Also, very good music (rock and metal). What I liked were different plastic bottles with some sort of liquer... More

Entry was up a narrow dark corridor with an assortment of graffiti and aroma's. Very small bar with extra seating areas. Murals and art work on the walls to give it "the feel". Glass topped coffin tables set it off. Bar staff very welcoming. Prices NOT...........6 euro for a pint of Maes is beyond the scale even if it is... More
