During the day it is a nice quiet pub to have a drink in and unwind, (didn't go in at night) with lots of bottled beers to choose from you will be spoilt for choice.
It has the feel and look of a typical English pub. Although we did not eat there they do serve food and it all looked appertising!
Dress Code: There was no dress code we could see.
In a smokey basement, somewhere in Ostend, where the spirit of Marvin Gaye still wanders, the old negro steps up from his table and walks to the old piano on the stage. From then on the mood is his to choose. From the frivolity of Freddie Hubbard's 'Always There' to the intimate 'The Dolphin' by Stan Getz.
Welcome to Tati's Jazz Club. Tati, who originates from Tunesia, reigns his scepter of creativity over this temple of jazz. Unannounced concerts, live jams, a super-csy atmosphere, the big smile of the waitress and Tati's endless optimism, they all contribute to the fact that this is definitely a 'Freestyle' place. Essential.
Dress Code: From the casino follow 'de langestraat' past de koekoek, the luna-park, go straight on, on the right you will see the enlighted saxophone if it's dark.
This also is one of the new places in Oostende, it's located in a completely renovated building. From walls to ceiling it's decorated. Worth a visit, check out the big terras.
Take a virtual tour on their website.

Dress Code: no problem
Local bar with very young girls and alot of drunks. Police came through with a muzzled Rottweiler and made sure to make eye contact with each patron before moving to the next. Bartender looks like a short Jean Claude van Dame with love handles and gold chains. Local kids and drunk fishermen were playing pool at the two tables, while Jean Claude sang Elvis tunes to the girls dancing on the dance floor. One of the town drunks (a fisherman who looked like a cross between Keith Richards and Dudley Moore) spilled bottle of tonic on me, tried to light my ear on fire and start a fight. Very smokey bar.
Dress Code: Casual
Small, unassuming bar at the beginning of the promenade near the Casino. Freindly staff behind the bar. I got booted an hour before they were supposed to close because the owner got tanked, fell down then wanted everyone to leave. Tried Krieg (Cherry Beer) for the first time here.
Dress Code: Casual.
Ostend typically comes alive at night with its many bars, restaurants, etc. You will find several English pubs with organ music and live performers.
Thousands of English tourists enjoy themselves in these pubs. The English even call the city of Ostend “the most British town in Europe”.
Evening Entertainment is organist playing and singing all the popular songs. Very popular place. Beer is 50 cents more to pay for entertainment at 2 euro small glass. Loads of Brits here.
