I'm surprised by some of these reviews, I was in Brussels two nights and I was here both of them and I loved it. I will admit that the smoking is a bit of an issue, but you'll get over it soon enough.

On Thursdays they have live music which is really nice, however they raise beer prices 25% when the band is playing! The place lets you have a tab (and they accept AMEX) which is fairly uncommon in most of the bars in Europe that I went to.

I was there the first night from about 8-2:30AM and the next night from 8-4AM (they close at 4AM every night) and my bills were totally reasonable both nights. I mainly got beer from the bar tender Charles who was awesome and I ended up hanging out with him later that second night.

Beer selection is simply amazing, I did run into a few beers that were out of stock (most notably Cantillon 50N 4E) but they have so many beers that you won't be sad for long, I had a 2005 Cantillon Iris that was amazing, a 2005 3 Fontenin Oude Gueze and a bunch of other great beers. But they also have both Delirium beers on tap for very cheap (3.20 euro I think, vs $9 in the US) so you can always fall back to that.

This was my favorite bar in Europe and next time I go to Europe I'm going to try my hardest to get back here again!

Been here a few times. It's definitely touristy, but they have a great selection of beer. Worth a visit just to say you've been here.

Fantastic selection of mostly Belgian style beers. It's basically self order at the bar and it can be busy and a bit loud, but highly recommended.

Fairly well known, touristy spot but a fun place to visit. Obviously they have their famed 2000+ beer bottle list but might as well drink some DT or DN on draft or wait forever for a bottle. It can get pretty packed so maybe not a place to hang out all night.

Obviously a great selection. But, too big and touristy for me. Try the Loft area for something more quiet.
