For one entertainment centre with ten different ways of experiencing it.
We worked on it. Ceaselessly, tirelessly, tenaciously and with firm conviction. For ten years.
The path was not strewn with roses, but we never lost sight of our goal.
Ten years on, Grand Casino Brussels VIAGE was ready to celebrate that dream in festive fashion. In April 2010, ‘Grand Casino Brussels VIAGE’ opened its doors in premises on the Anspachlaan near the Grand Place. The new place-to-be, a genuine temple of relaxation with playing areas, bars, restaurants and shows, was a reality. We were looking forward to starting this festive year in splendid style with all the people who believed in and placed their trust in us in the past decade, who were involved in one way or another, such as the residents of Brussels, the authorities, our partners, our customers,..
In these ten years, we put VIAGE on the Brussels nightlife map. We only need to think of Brussels as the capital of the World Poker Tour, Là Haut VIAGE, The Great Gatsby, VIAGE Grill, etc. We gave VIAGE solid foundations and were ready to strengthen our vision of becoming Brussels’ entertainment centre par excellence.

The past ten years were real and genuine.
The ‘Cinna Bar’ is waiting to let you sample delicious cocktails once more. The gaming tables and slot machines are looking forward to bustling with activity again. A distinguished silence has fallen over the Oak Room for now and it is daydreaming about the future when players will come from far and wide again to spend their time here. The pots and pans of the newly renovated ‘VIAGE Grill’ restaurant are hanging on their hooks and the Australian broiler grill is dreaming draconian dreams about spewing smoke and fire. In the ‘VIAGE Theater’ there are shadows of yesteryear: Prince, Kool & The Gang, Paul Anka, The Gibson Brothers, and many others who passed through in recent years. Last year, the sensational show ‘The Great Gatsby’ was still running. And, of course, the legendary Viage Musical Dinner Show began life here.
Our anniversary weekend is passing in silence. The revelry we had in mind is a long time coming. Because we will party! As soon as it is safe to return, we will revive our premises and fill them with activity, fun, laughter and warmth. Our festive year will not pass unnoticed. After all, the number eleven also contains a ten…
