The city center has a nightclub richer. VOLT opened its doors in Duquesnoystraat on Saturday. The club wants to offer a safe and inclusive environment, and therefore always has a woman at the door in addition to security guards.
The club is located near the central station, in the building where club You used to be, a few hundred meters from the Grote Markt. VOLT focuses on ‘urban’ music. The club’s employees traveled throughout Europe to be inspired.
Female visitors must feel safe in the club at all times. In addition to the security guards, there is therefore a woman at the door. “I ensure that everything goes well, and if there is a problem, people can come to me,” she says in a report by BX1.
Balance Ton Bar
The latter measure follows on from Balance Ton Bar, a movement that emerged almost two years ago because women wanted to denounce inappropriate behavior in the nightlife in Brussels. It led, among other things, to an action plan from the City of Brussels.
At the entrance to VOLT there is a sign with a clear message: “Please don’t enter our club with symptoms of racism, homophobia, sexism or transphobia.” VOLT does its best to be inclusive and welcomes everyone. On Friday there is a ‘guinguette’ atmosphere, on Saturday parties with hip-hop, R&B and Afrobeat are organized and on Sunday there is FLASH, a gay friendly evening.
