The Poechenellekelder

by Vincent

Just a stone’s throw from the Manneken piss on the corner is where you will find the Poechenellekelder café, or just nicknamed “Poech” for the regulars. This typical Brussels pub with its phenomenal interior decor is one of the most lively in the center during the day and has varied clientele where the locals don’t hesitate to share with the tourists for a chat.

View from the exterior

A look from the 1st room near the entrance

You get a feel of rich decor and special atmosphere as soon you enter

Approaching the main room near the bar section

Probably the best spot to enjoy the densely packed interior decoration with its puppets, trumpets, crossbows, beer crates hanging from everywhere.

Seated and awaiting a drink and a view of the bar itself

Downstairs section where they seem to have puppet shows

Other side

Final decision ater a while looking at the menu was Trappist Achel to drink

Je viens de faire une belle ballade dans Bruxelles, et je m'arrête pour déguster cette "Trappiste"

J'ai beaucoup aimé votre site, bien que je ne comprenne pas l'anglais, vos photos sont très parlantes et c'est une bonne idée de situé à chaque fois l'endroit sur la carte.

Bonne continuation et longue vie au site.
