The restaurant

In the old offices of the Lamot brewery in the heart of Mechelen, you will discover our new concept: a new food and drink culture. 

"Puro" is a cozy meeting place where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast, have a drink or a snack in the afternoon, or dine with great pleasure. 

On the upper floor, you can find a separate restaurant area for about 120 people, next to an air-conditioned lounge area where some 90 different wines are presented at the perfect temperature. 

Johan Verbrugghe, Jo Derkinderen and Johan Van Eetvelde, along with their entire team, guarantee a delicious culinary pleasures. 

We are delighted to welcome you in advance



In 2004, we were contacted by a project developer to setup a hospitality concept on the old Lamot site in Mechelen, just in front of the existing Novotel Hotel.

Pure Sang

After the purchase of the building, we contacted the interior/concept bureau 'Pure Sang', the former owner of Creneau, known from the Belgian Beer Cafés. 

Together with Pure Sang, we created a concept to attract all types of people, at any time of the day. From a list of different names, we kept the name "Puro.


We hope, with our experience in the hospitality sector, we can give you the response to the ever increasing demand of quality establishments in Mechelen.
