I visited this place on 3 occasions on a recent weekend in Brugge.
First entered at lunchtime on Friday. The place still smells new. Nicely decorated, with no expense spared. I can't recall what this building used to house. Atmosphere is something that is pretty impossible to "design", though.
8 beers on tap; the house beers Gambriwinus blonde and bruin (not bad), Jupiler blonde, Leffe blonde, Westmalle dubbel, Tarwebier Hoegaarden witte, Brugse Zot blonde, Belview Nieuw kriek.
Supposedly 400 bottles including listing 3 Westvleteren. Managed to try one on my final visit (I had the W8). W12 was available, but West blonde was out.
Served lunch and beer by pleasent young girl. Our second visit was on Saturday night, but the place was too crowded and noisy (all the noise from one raucous table!). We left without partaking.
On our last visit, we were served by a pleasent older woman who was kind enough to supply us with a jug of tap water and 2 glasses at no charge. This was something denied us at a nearby well known cellar bar; "we can only sell you bottled water".
Dodgy enough pop type music for my taste, though.
All-in-all this place is worth a visit. It (they) are trying very hard, and I wish them well.
