Bars in the region

Here is our totally non-scientific survey of bars in the region. Our primary measure of interest is the price for a "small beer". A "small beer" is purposefully vague measure since it could be anything between 2dl and 5dl in size and as ritzy as a Lefe or as cheap as a Calanda. Ordering a "small beer" gives you an excuse to park yourself at a table for a couple of hours and watch people walk by.

These prices were registered in the latter half of 2015 and the beginning of 2016.
