Bob's Bar

Restaurant

Quote:
My friend Hendrik took my brother and I out for a night on the town in Bruges. One of our stops was at Bob's Bar.

The bartender/owner, Bob, was friendly, and outgoing. When he learned that my brother and I were visiting from Canada, he immediately gave me his business card, asking me to send a postcard when I returned home.

Unlike other bars and cafes we'd been to, this one specialized, not in beer, but in cocktails. Bob had created some of the funkiest cocktails we'd ever tasted. Some of his concoctions were alcohol-free, but most were of the alcoholic variety.

Quote:
A tour through the canals of Bruges takes you through a major part of the city. You'll see the picturesque buildings from a different (lower!) point-of-view, and be able to take many pictures. The tours are narrated in several languages (English, Dutch/Flemish, & French at a minimum) and in addition to telling tourists what they are seeing, give some historical background and/or anecdotes about particular buildings or events.
