Oostende's upstairs Function Room, called 'Forbidden' (named after one of Belgium's famous beers - Forbidden Fruit), provides a modern and contemporary influence. Although quite different to the traditional Belgian Bistro style circa 1920s downstairs at Oostende, upstairs remains true to the Belgian Beer culture whilst creating a relaxed modern environment.

The upstairs function room allows you to hold a private event that is distinctively different and ideal for:

Cocktail parties, corporate functions, product launches, small meetings, training sessions, social club events, banquet dinners and christmas parties.

For groups up to 300 people, you may hire the entire venue for your event. This will encompass the entire ground floor of the Belgian Beer Café. For more information in regards to this, please contact us.
