The beautiful terrace at Fontainas, overlooking the pedestrian street, is one of the secrets of this bar's success. One of the other highlights of this bar is its cocktail list with lots of original recipes. On rainy days, take refuge inside and enjoy the vintage decor and listen to the great live electro music.

Gay friendly bar but not just that...


Near to the gay quarter, this bar has the reputation of being exclusive to gay clientele. That's not true. Fontainas was not set up with that aim. It's open to all - its designers, who were friends from uni, wanted it that way. So come along and get to know Fontainas. You might even find me at a table with some girlfriends, in the cosy room behind the bar.

The terrace is a must during summer


Once the good weather has gone, I head indoors to take refuge. It's impossible to be down in the dumps here - electro music, pink 70s style decor: the tone is set! It's not just the terrace which is worth the detour. Telling you all this made me very thirsty! Like me, do you dare to try the unknown? I barely knew any of the cocktails on the list on my first visit. With my thirst for the unknown suitably quenched - I would recommend you try the violet cocktail. And to go with it, why not try the little cheese cubes with mustard and celery salt. During the day, Fontainas also serves freshly prepared open sandwiches. It's ideal for a quick, cheap and friendly bite to eat.
