On November 5th we will welcome our guests with an exclusive Cocktail and a Gala Dinner at the Cercle Royal Gaulois Artistique et Littéraire”.

The club is situated in the historic Vauxhall building, in Brussels Park, behind the Théâtre Royal du Parc. The Vauxhall, named after the pleasure gardens of Vauxhall in London, was opened in 1781 by Alexandre Bultos and his brother Herman Bultos (co-directors of the Théâtres de la Monnaie and of the Parc). It was initially a drinking palace, concert hall and theatre. Since 1818, it has been the property of the City of Brussels.

The dress code for the event is black tie. (Tuxedo for men and long dress or cocktail dress for ladies)
