A great import beer bar, with a heavy leaning towards Belgium beers. The staff is friendly, fluent in English and the selection is impressive. Do yourself a favor and check this place out. From one beer lovers to another, you won't regret it.

Located about 40-50 meters off the main road in small soi. Very friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Lots of Belgian bottled beer selection and a few from UK and elsewhere. Somewhat disappointingly, though, only two draft beers on tap when I was there. Prices for...More

Huge selection of Belgian beers and ales, ranging from reasonably well-known brands (Palm etc) to more speciality or craft-type brews. Service was good, bar staff were fun and friendly.
