    Brasserie Flèche D'or: Ideal For A Beer After A Day Out

    by johngayton Written Dec 31, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a trio of little terraced bars opposite the Leopold Plein Kusttram stop and they're probably all a bit of a one-ness but in late May, when us tourists are a bit thin on the ground, they seem to close fairly early with the exception of Flèche D'or.

    This was a handy little bar for me since it was between the tram stop and my hotel and so I dropped in for a beer after my day out running up and down the coast, firstly to Adinkerke for my baccy and then to Zeebrugge, just to see what was there (page to follow).

    As bars go Flèche D'or seems a proper pub, rather than a restaurant, although it does offer a short snacky-type menu. Service was friendly, beer reasonably-priced and the terrace, overlooking the tram stop and the little park around it, on the sunny side of the square in the evenings and so ideal for sitting in the sun watching the world go by.

    Also useful for watching the sports on the big screen TV.

    Address: Leopold III Plein 12

    Directions: Opposite the tram stop and just down from the railway station.

    Les Deux Clefs: Definitely A John Pub!

    by johngayton Written Aug 29, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It wasn't just the beer price that endeared me to this little café-bar, although at 1.80 euro for a 33ml serving Les Deux Clefs is probably the cheapest pub in town. Nor was it the delicious landlady, Patricia. A friendly crowd of locals was a major plus as were the cheap snack sausages hanging behind the bar.

    Even though I only had one night here this was a bar that I felt immediately at home in, for all the above reasons which together make this pretty much a perfect pub. It's a no-frills sort of a place and just that little bit off the tourist path. The main activities are darts and Belgian billiards (a unique variation particular to the country) and judging by the trophies on display they seem to be pretty successful. The general atmosphere is friendly and good-humoured and the local clientele are an egalitarian mix of varying ages.

    Everything though is spotlessly clean and service swift and personal. By the time I'd had my second beer the barman was anticipating my next order and had it on the table just as I'd finished the previous one.

    I think I dropped by about 8-ish and have no idea what time I left - it seems closing time depends on the mood and judging by my single visit, so far, that mood is a regular thing!

    Dress Code: Proper pub and so no particular dress code - although scantily-dressed females are always appreciated.

    Address: De Smet de Nayerlaan 126

    Directions: On the street to the west of the station, where the St Antonius Church is.

    Blankenberge Casino: Not Just For The Gamblers

    by johngayton Written Dec 31, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Around the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries Blankenberge was a popular upmarket seaside resort, its "Belle Epoque" period when wealthy families would come to the town, complete with their households, for the season.

    It's no surprise then to find that the town boasts a suitably smart-looking casino. Here you'll find the usual roulette, blackjack, poker and slots but even if you're not interested in playing the tables it has a perfectly pleasant bar and a semi-formal restaurant which are open to all and sundry. Useful to know is that both these are open late - the restaurant until 2300 and the bar until 5 am, weekdays, and 6 am at weekends - so if you fancy a late beer when the pubs shut...

    Entry to the casino is free but is restricted to over 21's only and photo ID (passport or national identity card) is required.

    Dress Code: No strict dress code but smart casual seems the order of the day, or should I say night.

    Address: Zeedijk 150

    Directions: Main entrance is on Casinostraat and rather coincidentally there's a Kusttram stop there.

    CASINO BLANKENBERGE: Wanna play?

    by funkymama Updated Aug 30, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the beach-side, almost directly in the center of Blankenberge rises the Casino. It stands on the site where Emperor Napoleon had a fortress constructed in 1810. This fortress was later demolished and replaced with the first casino. This gambling hall was again changed in 1932-1935 and redecorated in Art-Deco style. Finally, in 1991, the entire complex was completely renovated in a very contemporary style.

    Dress Code: Proper Dress.

    Address: Sea Promenade 244 8370 Blankenberge.
