Bruges and the Coast
Bruges is not the liveliest city at night, but there are a handful of good hangouts, including several bars that attract a younger crowd at 't Zand. Pubs, mostly catering to an under-30 clientele, are clustered around the Eiermarkt, at the back of the Markt.
There are also many gay-friendly bars in Bruges. For an update on the best hangouts for gays, visit the Gaybruges website (www.j-h.be/gaybruges).
