Michael Collins Bar Ixelles Reviews
The Michael Collins Bar Apr 25, 2008
If you are looking for an Irish pub where the atmosphere is great and you can mingle with open hearted people I recommend that you visit the Michael Collins Bar in Rue Du Bailli. It is a traditional Irish pub with what is required; loads of different whiskeys and British and Irish beers, not that many Belgian beers – but if you want that you can go another place.
Usually there is live music on Fridays and Saturday and I have had some of my greatest laughs there. One time the musician got so drunk while playing that he performed a show that I never had seen before – It was like seeing an old Dave Allan show; he stopped in the middle of the song to take shot, he made one verse – and the told that he actually didn’t like the song and stopped, he introduced a song by saying: this is the fucking best love song in the world while fumbling over the word – and he stopped it after 2 minutes stating that it reminded him too much of girl he hated!, It was just a fantastic show and he went on like this for at least one hour.
The bar has also a very nice garden or terrace that you can sit outside on in the summer and the Indian nights.
