Live jazz in the heart of Brussels at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel TEXT: SIMON WILLMORE | PHOTOS: RADISSON BLU ROYAL HOTEL
Brussels’ Grand Place is the cultural and culinary epicentre of the city, where museums, shopping streets, restaurants, boutiques and nightlife abound. Yet, just four minutes’ walk away, is a rather more sophisticated night out, at a series of live music events called ‘Music Off, Jazz On’ at the four-star Radisson Blu Royal Hotel.
For more information, you can contact reception directly or follow the property on social media.
Featuring a modern Art Deco façade, the venue itself is alluring enough thanks to an original 12th century Romanesque wall and a real stream, giving the perfect atmosphere to welcome jazz bands around the piano and below the impressive luminous atrium.
Before heading on a trip to Brussels, visit the Pebblewood Corner for a healthy ‘Super breakfast’ buffet. Guests can choose from an array of breakfast options, including a gluten free station. After a long day wandering around the cobbled streets of the city centre, guests can appreciate an effective work out time in the well-equipped fitness area, which is free for all to use. A relaxing sauna and massages – upon request – are available to calm the mind.
The Atrium restaurant & lounge is welcoming the ‘Music Off, Jazz On’ events. Backed up by live saxophone and electric bass, previous evenings have featured singers Aneta Nayan and Valentina Della Gatta. They are free to attend and are held at the restaurant, which serves delicious cocktails and Belgian cuisine.
Guests will also be able to enjoy their stay in one of the 281 stylish and comfy rooms and suites offering a great range of amenities to provide that extra special touch, including free, high-speed Wi-Fi.
The hotel’s culinary highlight is the twice Michelin-starred and Gault Millauawarded Sea Grill restaurant, which
creates dishes such as monkfish with goose liver and candied chicory. If you want to combine pleasure with business, 18 meeting rooms are displayed all over the property, offering natural daylight and providing all the right elements for successful meetings. Located in the buzzing city centre of Brussels, the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is only situated four minutes away from the central station which offers direct connections to the airport, the city metro and Europe’s main rail lines. Who knew jazz could be so accessible?
