Re: Drinking in Ghent - Prices?

It partially matters what you're comparing the prices to. I come from Brooklyn, NY, where a beer is cheap if it's under $5. So the prices in Ghent, though they may be a little higher than some other places in Belgium, are still quite reasonable. It's actually my favorite city in Belgium. There is no bar in the city that makes it to my top 5 bars in Belgium (read: the world), but there are probably more that make my top 20 then any other city I can think of:

(forgive my spelling, my references are at home where my computer is currently not working) Hopdevil, Trollkelder, Galgenhuise, Waterhouse, Het Trappistenhuis, Dulle Griet,

De Brouwzaele, plus the crazy bicycle bar, whos name escapes me. And besides, not far from Ghent is Gans, which is one of the top five. It's a great place to visit, and has a unique atmosphere, I think...much of the history of Brugges, but not so quaint.
