The Jane: high-quality food and music
November 10 brings another edition of Full Circle. Think one ticket, twelve Antwerp based party locations. The best of Antwerp’s nightlife united. New this year is a dance party at Michelin starred restaurant The Jane. “Since the start of our restaurant, we try to bring gastronomy and music together.”
The Jane offers top-notch gastronomy at a unique location: the restaurant is set in the former chapel of a Military Hospital. And yes, your Full Circle ticket allows you to enjoy a party with good music and high-class finger food, for an additional cost.
Gastronomy made accessible
“I think The Jane is the perfect location to contribute to Full Circle,” says Nick Bril, chef, director, and co-owner of The Jane. “Our restaurant is usually exclusively for people who want and can afford highly gastronomic food. But on November 10, The Jane is for everyone. Especially for this event, I invited Ruige Vermeire, the chef of L.E.S.S. in Bruges. We’re both going to make some dishes.”
Love for music
“How we bring gastronomy and music together? Think of live performances of DJ’s or precisely adjusted music for every occasion. Next to my busy life as a chef, I work as a DJ myself.” Visitors can expect melodic deep house in a warm, homely ambiance. Four Belgian artists will play a set at the restaurant. Belgian deep house DJ Nico Morano opens The Jane at 2 p.m. Nick Bril himself, Maxim Lany and Hangar Soundsystem – all Belgian artists – will play their beats as well.
The doors open at 2 p.m. and close at 8 p.m. “That’s why our party is ideal for people who love going out but aren’t looking for ‘dark clubs’ or all night long parties,” Nick Bril concludes.
However, if you’re looking for a party as such, you should check out Club Vaag: another location that contributes to Full Circle. Nico Morano will play there as well, all night long. Read more about Morano looking forward to Full Circle here.
