Close to the city’s ‘Little Manhattan’ district and a stone’s throw from the Botanical Garden and the Bloom Hotel, nestled in the prestigious former RTT company building (designed by the architect Michel Polak), Area 42 is one of few contemporary spaces to offer such a huge venue right in the heart of Brussels, with multiple ambiance options and superb modularity.


Its many strengths make it the ideal venue for a wide range of corporate events.


We do not host birthday or wedding parties.
