The Brussels stock exchange project
Click on pictures to enlarge.
This summer, this formidable project will bring down the curtain and inaugurate a new history, a new future for this emblematic building of Brussels, the Bourse. Since 2020, carefully withdrawn from the eyes of the people of Brussels, the construction site has not ceased to redraw the lines and curves, reformat the floors, modify the accesses, open spaces, from the base to the top, from the basement to the roof, following a scenario, a story that has only one goal: to make the queen of Belgian beverages, the beer, shine!
The city of Brussels and the architects, artists and designers of the project invite us on a journey into the fascinating world of this national beverage (our country has included beer in the UNESCO intangible heritage! Below, in the basement, the ancient Franciscan Monastery and the tomb of the Knight Gambrinus, King of Beer, have been refurbished, made visible by openings dug in the ground, the archaeological site "Brussels 1238" cradle of the ancestral manufacture of beer will have to expect many more visits than before!
Just a prelude to this new adventure, a new restaurant, a brasserie and an International Beer Museum, the "Belgian Beer World" will take up residence on several floors of the new building and over 4000 m2, installations using the latest technologies have been set up to immerse us in the secret world of beer making, more than a hundred brewers will make you discover the stages of fermentation, the many secrets of the innumerable Belgian recipes will perhaps be revealed before your eyes!?
Higher up, a magnificent view of the Atrium invites you to continue the ascent, always higher, to finish the visit in the firmament, on the terrace where a new and sublime 360° panoramic SkyBar awaits you and will offer more than 1300 Belgian beers!!!
Enjoy yours, if you can choose, comfortably installed, the gaze lost on the city which will extend in all directions, this new Roof-top is simply extraordinary and will be added to the other roof-top projects in progress and of which we will tell you soon!
This project becomes reality this summer, in July 2023... See you there!??
