Maison de la Radio


Formerly the National Institute of Radio Broadcasting, Flagey has been given a new lease of life through a cultural space with an eclectic programme. A centre for the arts in Brussels!

Cult location


The architecture of Place Flagey would be pretty drab without the imposing building shaped like a steam liner which overlooks the Ixelles Ponds! This building, which brightens up the urban landscape, is Belgium’s former Maison de la Radio. Built during the 1930s, it has retained its old world charm. Its rounded corners, the colour of its stone, and its resolutely modernist appearance make it, in my eyes, one of the capital’s architectural gems.

Cultural space


Now a cultural space, the Flagey houses five rooms of different sizes with different functions, all with unique acoustic qualities. A house where jazz, traditional music, classical music, and contemporary music can all resound at once, where cinema and video are honoured, and not forgetting the interaction between the different artistic disciplines. And when you’ve had your fill of culture, what could be nicer than sipping a drink in Café Belga, which livens up the ground floor.


Sophie, 31 FASHION ADDICT

I work as a fashion consultant, tear through the papers every morning, race off to concerts whenever I can and claim ""belgitude"" as a guarantee of original quality! My little extra: new shops, trendy concept-stores, organic restaurants and artists' workshops.
