Owner description: Vooruit is a vibrant live performing arts center located in a 100 years old monument in the heart of Ghent. Since 1982, we have been offering countless cultural events like concerts, podium performances, parties, book presentations, debates... Vooruit is a significant meeting place for a very diverse public. Contributing to this is our popular Cafe with patio, where anyone can come enjoy a (vegetarian) meal or drink, meet for a chat, or catch up on some work.

It is an art nouveau building, quiet remarkable in the student area.

Thanks for your review! We like to be remarkable, especially with our 100 years old building that is a place that welcomes everybody whether it is for a drink or to enjoy one of our many events that take place in one of our 5 rooms. However we are a bit sad you find our place average. If you are ever around on a Saterday (every first of the month), we would like to invite you to take a guided tour in our building (on stage / backstage ...) . That way we can hopefully convince you a bit more of the beauty of our historical building.

For people with brains and into culture, one of the best venues of the town. Popular with students. Absolutely gay-friendly, with quite often gay parties in one of their many rooms. And in summer, Vooruit welcomes dance addicts with '10 Days Off.'
