Afsnis - in Ghent - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

If you are looking for a hidden gem in Ghent, then Afsnis bij Sint Jabocs is the place to be. The cafe serves a wide variety of beers and if you want to enjoy some wonderful live music, this cafe is a great option.

Why you should visit it

This café was a set of a Belgian movie called 'Belgica'. It is actually about another café located on the Vlasmarkt called 'Charlatan'. The movie describes the origin of the cafe, how it became big and the decay of it.

Special tip

Check the agenda to know when and which concerts are held. Sometimes there is even some stand-up comedy. (note: this will be in dutch obviously)
