Where to enjoy your night with a good beer in Bruges?

It could be hard to choose one place worth for spend your precious time! So, I picked three pure local places with enormous atmosphere. Let´s check them and I promise, you will not be disappointed.

De Republiek

It is very popular among locals and you can get Belgium beer and food here. Prices are reasonable and staff friendly. If they are not super-busy, you can have a nice conversation with them about local culture for example. The (recently renewed) interior is breath-taking.

Sint-Jakobsstraat 36
Opening hours
Sun-Wed: 12pm – 1am
Thu: 12pm – 2am
Fri-Sat: 12pm – 3am

De Republiek

De Stoepa

This is one of the magic places you need to see. It was one of the first pubs I visited here, and I was leaving with a deep impression. The outside decoration is just amazing and interesting for everyone, people here are nice, and this place is suitable even for larger groups. Also, very popular amongst locals.

Address: Oostmeers 124
Opening hours (re-opening 14th November):
Tue-Sun: 11am – 1am
Closed on Mondays

De Garre

Finding this pub is kind of a challenge, because it is little bit hidden. But after you get here, you can have tasty beer while enjoying the friendly atmosphere with the lovely staff. It is possible to taste high-quality local cheese or pâté here as well, but they serve cold food only – although it is not a bad thing!

Address: De Garre 1
Opening hours:
Sun – Thur: 12pm – 12am
Fri: 12pm – 12.30am
Sat: 11pm – 12.30am

De Garre

And if this is not enough for you, here is the list of other places with great beer (and wine or coffee as well)

  • Cambrinus, Philipstockstraat 19
  • De Lokkedize, Korte Vuldersstraat 33
  • Brugs Beertje, Kemelstraat 5
  • Vino Vino, Grauwwerkersstraat 15

I would like to recommend a visit to the local breweries as well. The tour with beer tasting is  a great experience associated with Bruges and you will definitely enjoy it!
