Parties in Brussels

Parties in Brussels

Knowing which are the coolest venues in Brussels is not enough to experience its nightlife.

Some venues are the "place to be' on some specific nights of the week, but not in other nights. If you show up the "wrong" night, you will not understand why all your friends where so enthusiastic about it!
A lot of people are crazy in love with some parties but can not tell you where and when the next one will be held. Some of the parties are organised every week or every month in the same location, some others are held only one or two times a year, or depends on the motivation of the crew...
Fortunately there's a sesame which will open you the doors of the nicest events in the city : the name of the parties is the first step to an extraordinary nightlife in the Capital...
