Different location, same concept. After the success of last years open, Hendrick’s a new temporary bar for an experimental trip along the so-called Chambers or the Curious. A bit of a connoisseur knows that the Scottish ginmerk refers to a creative place, where, in addition to cocktails, tastings also adventurous entertainment in the form of psychological experiments can take. Who here step inside, turn on best taste buds and senses sharp.

For the first edition the pop-upzaak erected in the atmospheric Pharmacie Anglaise, the former pharmacy on the mont des arts, that when obstinate was shows by Max now its possible to go, frontman of Oscar and the Wolf. He made a successful victorian freak show.

This year, from 21 October, saves Hendrick’s his tents on the site of Tour and Taxis, Brussels. The location: the Depot for Dangerous Goods, a former ammunition depot of the Belgian army, built in the 1900’s. ‘The ideal place for an extraordinary and exciting cerebral experiences to facilitate’, so it sounds already.

Baloji, creative centipede, with Congolese roots, is the ‘Ambassador of the Curiosity’ with the service. The musician (and poet, musician, writer, actor, performer, director) cast a creative look at the cocktail menu, had the artistic direction of the bar, created a musical universe and took the experimental room under hands that ginmerk to him for decision. Expect a ‘genuine voyage of discovery through the depths of your eight intelligences, with a strong cocktail in hand of course.
