One of my discoveries in Ghent is a bar called “De kleine kunst”. What a great place! I love the bustling atmosphere in this bar!
Sometimes there are stand-up comedy try-outs and almost every week there are several free concerts. You can check out the calendar on their website for more information.
If you want to try a typical drink from Ghent you should order a “Roomer“. It’s an alcoholic drink based on elderberry flowers brewed by two young men in Ghent. As a snack you can order “een droge worst” it’s a dried sausage served with some mustard. Belgian people like to eat it while drinking beers.
The food they serve is basic but good. I tried the pasta bolognaise because it seemed to be quite popular and now I know why: cheap, fresh, tasty and you get a lot of cheese :). Smakelijk!
