Summer is coming and Brussels is getting hotter and hotter.
The city is preparing to enjoy the warm season, offering a number of events, concerts, and activities all around the metropolis. The choice is wide and you may feel overwhelmed by the opportunities. Luckily, Brussels Express is here to give you some hints on the places and events you should not miss!
To enjoy the nice weather and take a break from work, there is nothing like having a cold drink on top of a nice building in the city centre, spending time with friends and enjoying the sunset from above. For this reason, this week we would suggest to consider Beursschouwburg, a multidisciplinary art café in the very centre of Brussels. It offers a rich variety of events, such as theatrical productions, performances, films, concerts, exhibitions, debates, lectures, parties and drinks. It is a point of reference if you are interested in arts, since it presents a rich variety of new artists and events that stand out from the more mainstream channels.
Beursschouwburg offers a nice café, displayed as a gigantic chess board, in which you can sip your favorite drink while getting to know new people. Nonetheless, the true added value to this bar is the great rooftop, that gives an incredible view over Bourse and the city centre.
This year the bar celebrates its ten years and is preparing “Out Loud!” a set of great activities for that! From the 7th of June to the 1st of July Beursschouwburg will transform the roof top! It will become a public space, in which people are invited to have picnics, sunbathe and have a drink -from Wednesday to Saturday from 12:00 on. It will host film nights, from Wednesday to Thursday from 22:30, where they will display music documentaries, films, videoclips and concert recordings. Last but not least, the roof top will also host concerts of new bands and all-time favorites lives, from Friday to Saturday at 22:00, with an apero at 19:00 on Fridays.
The choice at Beursschouwburg will be wild and full of surprises: it will go from a documentary on disabled musicians from Kinshasa (7th ofJune) to a concert of Elko Blijweert, a Belgian musician mostly famous for its virtuoso and idiosyncratic guitar playing (10th of June). It is a great opportunity to find out more about Brussels’ underground cultural life and developing artists. Absolutely not to miss!
