Overview
More
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.

Wandered around the arts centre, where obviously lots goes on. The cafe downstairs is worth a visit on its own.

Besides its rich cultural content (theater, exhibitions, concerts, parties), this place also offers a huge bar. The choice of beers is great, and as it is the social-origin near-university place, the prices are quite OK. My housemate used to work here, and I can just...More

I didn't get to see a show, but I did stop for a beer at the bar. They have a great patio. It was almost too sunny to spend out on it when I was there, but there is some shade too.
