Can't remember the name of this place, maybe it didn't have a name! Its on Sint-Jansplein, which is left off Vlamingstraat, which in turn runs from the corner of the Markt square. Its basically on the way the the Choco-story (which is alright by the way). There is a small square with a few bars on it.
The one we went into was on the corner and was quiet at first (around 10pm), by midnight it was absolutely rammed and full of locals (mostly age 18-35).
There was a bar next door, which looked much posher, it didn't let us in because of a 'private party'! Give that a try as well.
Dress Code: None at all
Bigger than the places at the Eiermarkt, this nightclub is more of a local hangout.
It´s the big black door up a small flight of steps on the Jacob van Ooststraat. A mid-sized nightclub open thursday to sunday only. No entrance fee. OK music. Tables available for dancing on as there´s standing room only. You need your elbows to get to the bar, and make sure you keep away from drinks with straws as they´ll have your eye out! A fun night, though. Young to mid thirties crowd.
Dress Code: None
A secret little place, this. Open saturday nights only. Go from town up the Twijnstraat (near the Irish Bar) and just past the Kelkstraat (and on the same side) you´ll find the wonderfully named Luciferum.
A band will play the evening away with Latin music, while you sit and drink your rum cocktails (5 euros per generous glass), squidge between the chairs to dance, and admire the artwork upstairs.
You might even - if you stay long enough - be given a piano recital by Willy, the eccentric owner, or a tour of the house with it´s many quirks.
Just ring on the doorbell, and if Willy likes you you´re in for a charming evening.
Dress Code: No dress code.
There is about 5 late night bars. All free entry.
Three looked promising if under 40 yrs old.
"Coolcats" - bit of a corridor shape and too small to really have a good time in. Toilets are free.
"Pick" - square room with bar and music. Not bad for jumping around in, but lighting is crap and again too small.
"Ambiorix" - has a raised dancing area which although limited in size gives a good view for both those dancing and those watching. Music was very varied including some local nonsence stuff but at 2:00am any music is good music in this town. The biggest and best venue good lighting and not all blokes.
Dress Code: Anything Goes
There are some places to go out at the Eiermarkt (Eggmarket) and 't Sand (at the busstation). But don't expect to much of it. At St Jacobsstraat there is across a place called 'La plaza' a nice place where you can dance (don't go to 'La Plaza' by the way if you are between 18 and 33 and wanna have fun. Rich classy looking over middle aged people -or should I say snobs?- come here.)
You don't really go to Brugge for the nightlife but this is a good place. I liked it because it had a good atmosphere and was great for a chilled beer with a bit of music and great seats to recline into (if you're lucky enough to get one). Open fire (not that unusual in Brugge). It is just about lively enough.
Dress Code: Never really a problem in Brugge at all. Don't get too dressed up.
