Don’t ask for a beer at the bar, but order a ‘klepke’
It’s 33cl and often a little cheaper compared to a ‘pintje’ (25cl). Salut the guys at the bar by saying ‘oep aa bakkes’ (= on your face) and cheering.
Mechelen is a big village
where everybody knows each other. So dive into our bars, get to know one cool local and you’ll know every cool Mechelaar by the end of the night.
