Owner description: De Kelk is a wellknown bar in Bruges for over more than 100 years. After a total renovation, De Kelk was reopened in the beginning of March 2017. The focus is now more on (rock)music, in stead of speciality beers. The menu consists of 50 kinds of beers (8 on tap and a lot of local beers), a big range of liquors, some cocktails and tapas in the near future (the kitchen is currently being renovated). The concert hall in the back will also reopen in the future. Hopefully we see you soon !

We found this bar while attempting to find a particular beer that most of the bars had ran out of; they didn't have it but explained why they don't cary it. This pub has a great selection of beers that you wouldn't be able to find in America. After speaking with the bartender, we just had him select beers that he felt we should try...great experience.

We were there on a Thursday evening before they got busy and the bartender/owner gave us a great education on Belgian beers, the brewing process, etc. As the bar filled up, we quickly made friends with some of the regulars.

We were trying out some of the top 10 bars in Brugge, this being one of them. We were greeted by a Rhod Gilbert lookalike ( Welsh comedian ) ! He was the friendliest barman we'd met so far, although nearly everyone working in the bars/restaurants are. Lovely atmosphere and lots of lovely beers to try, will be going back again next year.

Went here late one night after arriving in Bruges. The bartender, Michele, was awesome. They have two taps and a very large selection of bottles, each with their own special glass. Stayed until 3am, talking to locals, drinking beer, and having a great time. Definitely a place to go if you love Belgian beer...
