Culinaria: The Belgium Effect

This year, Culinaria has been themed: The Belgium Effect.
Culinaria’s 2015 edition is a celebration of Belgium.

The Culinaria Experience by The Hotel

Quelques mots sur le thème : L’agitation autour de la cuisine belge… Cela fait un moment qu’on en parle, plusieurs années déjà que Culinaria l’imagine, la presse, le subodore, la met en mots sous forme de Manifeste (voir notre onglet Ceci n’est pas un manifeste )… L’impatience était à son comble…

Cette année se devait d’être celle de la FÊTE DE LA BELGIQUE , de sa gastronomie, de son terroir humain et de son image sur la scène internationale, un BELGIUM EFFECT en guise de thème de l’année pour l’édition 2015 de Culinaria.

A Slice of Urban Luxury at The Hotel Brussels

, ,

Discover what travel blogger and journalist Polly Allen, of The Travelling Calavera, thought of The Hotel when she checked in for five days of luxurious relaxation and panoramic city views. Here’s a hint of what she loved about staying here…

Polly Allen


‘Set just a stone’s throw from the exclusive shopping street of Avenue Louise, The Hotel Brussels takes its cue from its stylish surroundings and creates something that never goes out of fashion. I saw this for myself when I took the short walk from the Louise Metro station to the complex, passing Versace, Chanel and Jimmy Choo stores in the process. Stepping inside the building, my jaw began to drop as I took in the seriously chic decor – dark panelling, thick grey carpet and elevators sealed by gold doors. Definitely a classic.

My jaw continued to drop as I discovered my room’s ambient lighting, chic wall-to-wall sofa area lined with grey houndstooth cushions in soft velvet, and the fashion tomes placed alongside…’

Louis Vuitton Exhibition “Special Orders – Travel Collection”

The Hotel likes to inspire you: eight showcase cubes surround the seating area of The Bar on the ground floor, and offer a platform to local and international creative talent related to art or fashion.

Our Neighbour Louis Vuitton is the first to showcase with a very exclusive exhibition of small bags for make up, watches and accessories called “Special Orders – Travel collection”.

Louis Vuitton, trunk maker since its beginning, has symbolized the art of travel since 1854, by combining aesthetics and functionality and creating travel objects that epitomize the French art de vivre. Since 1997, with the introduction of Marc Jacobs as artistic director, the Maison has broadened its horizons to ready-to-wear, shoes, watches and jewelry, thanks to a brilliant mix of craftsmanship, intuition and innovation.

The selected objects for the exhbition the Boîte Flacons, the Coffret Trésor and the Coffret Montres are all perfect illustrations of Louis Vuitton’s historical know-how. Since 1978, Louis Vuitton has been a part of LVMH/Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Bernard Arnault’s leading luxury group, and can boast an exclusive network of 466 stores in 66 countries worldwide.
