Brugge Nightlife, Belgium

Brugge Nightlife – What & Where to Eat

Brugge will sure welcome you with the complete eating out menu, as the local ambiance is truly respected as an ingredient in all their dishes and it definitely weighs a lot. You will find the whole gamma of international specialties, from the Japanese Tanuki where you can see the chef prepare the food in front of you to the Indian Bhavani with very colorful and spicy dishes in a truly stylish atmosphere.

There are also many cafes where you can have a quick bite on the terrace and just get lost in the fantastic views. De Stoepa, for example, serves orientally inspired snacks and has a lovely patio, while Passage offers you a characteristic Belgian atmosphere and very good food. If you decide to take a seat at Cambrinus you can choose between the more than 400 types of beer and you should most definitely try the “Menu of the brewers”. Cambrinus is very well known for the beer based dishes it has to offer, and this is something you don’t want to miss in your trip in Brugge.

Flemish specialties can also be found in lots of high quality restaurants throughout the city, but we especially recommend the award winning De Karmeliet and De Gouden Meermin, which have an excellent selection of traditional dishes. For the best seafood go to De Visscherie and if you want an eclectic menu try the stylish De Florentijnen.

Brugge Nightlife – Where to Go Out

Belgium is best known for its hundreds of types of beers, and if you want the whole beer package, you should take a day trip to Brussels and try some of their local prides. However, the country also has some good wines you can choose from (the region of Lille in France is of great inspiration!) and the perfect place to do this is Wijnbar Est, which also has live jazz and blues performances throughout the week.

If you want a more hype atmosphere that perfectly combines contemporary tendencies with the old Brugge charm try B-IN Loungebar and restaurant, which stays open until late into the night and is a very popular location. You might also be interested in a bit of partying, for which the very large Vino Vino is the perfect place to go.

A very special place is Café Vlissinghe, the oldest pub in Bruges, which dates back to 1515! The bar has been restored, but it maintains its original aspect, and the beer is great: you can try one of the “triple ales” that have a higher percentage of alcohol and start to dream about the way people used to drink there more than five centuries ago.

The Brugs Beertje is one of the largest pubs, known for its very friendly atmosphere and great selection of beers. It was often referred to as the best pub in the world, this is no joke, and you should definitely make it a high priority Brugge destination.
