  1. R Richard
    Fun Cruising Bar in Brussels

    “Went there on both a Friday and Saturday night. The place gets busy by 11pm, packed by midnight, stays busy until around 3am.

    The bar area and the backroom are about the same size. In the backroom there are 3 areas: (1) a couple of elevated gloryholes where you go up a few stairs to get sucked by someone standing below; (2) about 8-9 cabins that you can join someone else in; (3) an open "darkroom" that can fit about 10 people max.

    All 3 areas were busy while I was there. And the backroom overall was quite busy - at any given time it felt like there was 40-50 people in the darkroom, and plenty more in the front bar. A range of ages (20s-60s) with no one age more prominent than another.

    Definitely had fun...would go back when I'm next in Brussels!“

      Best Days to Visit

      “I should add that Friday and Saturday are the busy days there, with Thursday and Sunday (both naked nights) slightly less busy, and I think its pretty quiet there Monday-Wednesday.“

  2. G Gerry
    Dishonest bar staff

    “When you ask for a spirit (such as vodka) you do don’t receive full measures. Observed at least 2 bar staff only filling half measures and filling the glass with ice so customers are only getting half measures yet paying full price. The bar are was ok but we careful as there are loads of pickpockets operating in this place. It’s also very dirty and I won’t be returning that’s for sure. The staff are not friendly and also more interested in getting the pink pound and ripping off customers in the process.“

  3. M Moscardini
    Not for sex

    “Location: In the city center.
    Type of clientele: From 25 to 55 years old. There is no selection at the entrance, but bears , young people not effeminate and mature men with a beautiful body are welcome.
    Structure: Divided into two parts. The bar area is not very spacious and has few seats; people remain standing, the atmosphere is very cheerful and there is a great desire to make friends. The dark area is small, suitable only for fast little things with pants down, offers a couple of booths where you can close, some glory holes and some erotic games that nobody seems to consider. Little action, people walk around or stand against the wall.
    Cleaning: Sufficient.
    Prices: Adequate.
    Advice for customers: We were there on Saturday night and, fortunately, we entered quite early. From mid-night onwards, the place is filled to capacity. Not suitable for couples looking for a quiet evening. Suitable for those looking for fun and meetings. Dress in a sporty way, jeans and a t-shirt so you won't suffer from the heat.
    Advice for managers: Since the cruising area is of no use, it would be better to reduce it to a minimum or eliminate it, to enlarge the bar area. A few more seats would be convenient.“

    very average

    “first impression is bad, i didn't really notice the cloakroom as it was packed, when i approached the bar a barman pulled me by my jacket and said i had to leave it at reception. so far for a bit of subtlety. i approached the cloakroom and the person didn't want to take my coat because i wasn't standing right under the arrow where you are supposed to stand. toilets were filthy. for the rest it was quite nice...“

  5. m moscardini

    “Position: In the centre.
    - Type of clientele: Age varies, from 30 to 55 years mostly. No fashion victim.
    -Structure: Small room with very few seats. Saturday night fills to capacity. The cruising area is small and little happens.
    -Price: Adequate.
    -Conscious for customers: For those looking for a happy place, maybe an encounter that then ends at home or in a hotel. It is not the place for those seeking only action.
    -Considers for managers: It would be better to put more seats. You can also reduce the cruising area and enlarge the bar area.“

    Hot men, hot staff, hot bar!

    “I went to Stamm bar 4 nights in a row and every night was better than the previous one.

    In January people have less money to spend after the excesses of Christmas and new year but Stamm was consistently busy.

    The crowd is friendly, attitude-free and, if you like bears and leather men, very handsome. The staff are gorgeous: friendly, smiley, flirty if you want them to be.

    Drinks are very reasonably priced and the place is beautifully maintained: sleazy and sexy, yes, but not grubby. One of the best bars of it's kind that I've ever been to. Je reviews!“

    Good facilities. Friendly staff

    “Even though we visited on Monday there were many people around. Nice atmosphere and free entry so even if you just want a drink is a nice place to hang out“

    Very fun bar

    “Very clean and lots of condoms and lube packets at the bar. Lots of mix type of guys for fun, very big cabins to play in and lots of group play. Drive and bartenders are very cool and laid back. I went 3 times while in Brussels had fun a few time a night. Very worth the time to drink and play.“

  9. K Kevin
    Very dirty nightmare

    “Ouch. By far the dirtiest cruise club on Earth. No condom, no paper, no trash can in any cabin. I let you imagine how dirty the ground and walls are at 3.00. No staff to clean like in any sauna or real cruise club. Don't dare to tell this to the 'big' (in every way) boss, or you're gonna get through serious problems. I've been told by a costumer I may find condoms at the bar, the only basket had no condom but only lubricant bags. The cherish on the cake is the 'restroom', that should be renamed 'smelly dump'...and these guys who touch you again and again, and who seem to have a deal with the staff to harass any young guy, without being stopped.
    If you want to have a drink: many other clean and welcoming bars in the same street. If you need action : there's a rather clean sauna at 10meters. I can only hope this shame close after being inspected, for a nice cruise club to open at last in Brussels.“

    “Would really recommend Stammbar. The interior and attention to detail inside is fantastic, really dark and moody making for a fun, exciting atmosphere. Gorgeous guys aplenty and drinks are pretty cheap too.“

  11. T Tom

    “Great party, gorgeous guys, good music and the friendly staffs were also very sexy! For me the best place in Brussels to spend a warm summer evenings!“
