The club is even known over the border for its impressive programme, which is varied and up-to-date and a veritable showcase of the latest musical trends.

  • C12

    Since the beginning of 2018, Brussels is one new nightclub and multipurpose project space richer and it's hard to imagine the city's nightlife without it. C12 lies hidden beneath Brussels' Central Station in what used to be known as the Horta Gallery. At the helm is ‘Deep in House’, a techno collective that is well established on the clubbing scene. As well as steamy house and techno parties, there's space for concerts, exhibitions and performances. C12 is a freespace where freedom, diversity, creativity and alternative culture are protected and celebrated. An absolute must.

  • Bloody Louis

    Situated at 32 Avenue Louise in Brussels, this trendy club is a place where music lovers come together. Leather chesterfield sofas, table football, neon lights and a pinball machine contribute to a unique decor. The 'Bloody' reaches out to a cosmopolitan audience that enjoys emerging hip hop and house music. In the past 3 years they have welcomed artists like DJ Snake, Future, Diplo, Travis Scott, Tory Lanez, PNL, Martin Solveig…

A place with a convivial atmosphere that specifically showcases the Belgian electronic scene and young emerging artists.

  • YOU night club

    Considered as the one of the best nightclubs in the centre of Brussels, the You Night Club changes character each night. Friday's crowd is quite young and the music played is commercial, with themed nights organised. Saturdays are focused on hip hop for 25 to 30 year olds, with a selection at the door and strict attention given to a qualitative service and the best possible music. Sundays at the You have been a cornerstone of the gay party scene in Brussels for more than ten years now. Make your choice!
