Cafes

Concert Hall
“Five young friends refurbished and old billiard hall into a concert hall/nightclub with so much success. Close from city centre but far enough to make you feel you're in another city. They offer a very balanced and eclectic program of live concerts and live dj's during all week long. But also they do organize expo's, markets, exhibitions, etc. Have a drink on their terrace in front of the train rails”
