If you like to plan your travels to include some big nights out, then La Demence is an event that is probably on your radar.
This monthly party has really set the standard for nightlife in Brussels, bringing together guys from across Europe who love to get a bit sweaty on the dancefloor.
In a world where gay parties come and go, what sets La Demence apart is its longevity. This year, they’re celebrating their 34th anniversary – an incredible achievement.
To mark this milestone, the La Demence team is planning 4 nights of parties. The dates that you need in your diary are 27-31 October.
Halloween is always a pretty big deal in Brussels, but with La Demence bringing all the boys to town we’re all expecting lots of tricks and plenty of treats.
The breakdown of the parties is as follows:
Friday 27 October @ Fuse
Saturday 28 October @ Palais 12
Sunday 29 October @ Fuse
Tuesday 31 October @ Fuse
Fuse is a club in the centre of Brussels – you’ll probably be able to walk there from your hotel. Palais 12 is a big warehouse space out near the Atomium.
You’ll probably want to get your tickets early – Fuse is a big club but it has capacity limits, every night is pretty much guaranteed to sell out.
It’s also a good idea to plan ahead and get your accommodation sorted – the preferred hotels will fill up fast. You want to make sure that you’re staying where all of the action is.
Some of the hotels that you should consider are:
The Augustin: this is a boutique hotel that has recently been renovated. This hotel is in a great location – you can walk there from the Brussels Midi train station, and you’re then within walking distance of Fuse, and the bars of the city’s Rainbow Village.
Aloft: the location of this hotel is in the European Union district and it’s a modern fit-out with a design aesthetic. There’s an easy metro link to get you into the centre of the city.
Renaissance: what we love about the Renaissance is their swimming pool and sauna. Renaissance is a trusted hotel brand and this property is ideally suited to help you get the most out of your visit to Brussels.
Pullman Brussels Centre Midi: the Pullman has a lot going for it. It’s central location means that you can pretty much walk everywhere you need to get to, the rooms are spacious, and it’s got a gym and a sauna to pump you up and help you relax.
La Demence Halloween weekend is going to require plenty of stamina. Get ready for late nights and lots of dancing. These are the kind of parties where you don’t need to wear many clothes, but you’re going to want to break out some fun looks that get you noticed as you immerse yourself in the experience.
One of the things that sets La Demence apart from similar parties around the world is the diversity of the crowd that it attracts. This isn’t just a room full of circuit gays – you’ll meet a huge range of guys of all ages and tribes, all there to enjoy the music and have a good time.
