Pretty cool atmosphere

I really liked this place. They had a huge selection of some awesome belgian beers, nice wooden tables and a great tavern style feel all together. The mussels were delicious and I enjoyed the decor as well (Bruegel paintings-very fitting). We sat upstairs. I would have enjoyed a little more elbow room, it was really crowded. Our table was right next to the bar and the people sitting at the counter couldnt back out of their chairs without hitting us :( It didn’t ruin the experience or anything though. It was just kinda odd!
