Bar Palmier  Serves food Closed Monday Closed Tuesday New entry in the Guide in 2018

Upscale place with raw (“natural”) wine and a very good beer list.

Cafe Ernst  Serves food Closed Monday Closed Tuesday New entry in the Guide in 2019

New modern cafe near the riverfront with a good tap list.


Corner pub near the University, this Scottish bar has over 100 whiskies. Beer selection is average. In a new location, around the corner from 't Waagstuk.


A funky corner pub in the Borgerhout district (east of Centraal Station). Lots of bicycling racing memorabilia on the walls. Nothing special in the taps but a decent bottle selection and friendly staff. I am told it is a great place to watch bicycle races on TV. Live music on Sundays.
