La Tricoterie – Links factory
La Tricoterie has dreamt up a "links factory". A place of "encounter" where different disciplines, generations and groups mingle in a spirit of exchange and emulation. The cultural agenda (concerts, shows, expos) also includes a civic programme (discussions, lectures, repair café, intergenerational workshops, philosophy café). In tandem with these activities, the spaces are offered for hire and dedicated to the organisation of events. The project aims to become a sustainable event space at the heart of Brussels, one that takes a simple approach: invest meaning and reflection into the event practices of La Tricoterie and those of client-partners.

Benelux is the new bar that reconciles with the Centre of Brussels. Fitted out with a number of converted spaces (a bar for showing off, a space to dance, a mezzanine for stepping out, a lounge area for conversation), this is a place to do as you please with a cocktail, a glass of wine or a beer. Located right in the formerly tourist quarter of Petite rue des Bouchers, Benelux is a little closer to the real Brussels we used to like, where you feel its heart still beating. That's the concept behind this quirky place: so that people who love the city can savour a moment of pleasure and be there, meet up with friends and share a toast without being rushed, because closing time, like everything else, isn't written in stone. It's as simple as that.
