Grote Markt 23, Turnhout, Belgium
This club is open every weekend. You will find a cozy bar at the front and a real club at the back. This was originally a postal building. This can be found on the walls of the building, which are covered with antique mailboxes. The building is also called ‘the theater café’. At the back is a large and authentic theater room. Unfortunately, this part is no longer used due to the poor condition of the building. Fortunately, the café and club are worth it!
