5 authentic Flemish bars in Bruges

1) Hollandse Vismijn

The Hollandse Vismijn (Holland Fish Market) is an authentic Bruges bar on the old fish market square. It’s a friendly spot where locals like to drink a glass of Brugse Zot while young socialists talk politics in an upstairs room. Drop by on a weekend evening in the summer and you might find an open-air bar, live music and dancing in the street.
