“La Rocca is definitely more than just a night out, it is an experience… AN EXPERIENCE YOU SHOULD NOT MISS!”
– claims the description on La Rocca website larocca.be. Sadly, this experience would not be accessible in Belgian party map anymore.
Out there since 1988, La Rocca has been an inseparable part of Belgian night life. Hundreds of Dj’s have made a mark in this night club, including David Guetta, Tiesto, Felix da Housecat, Sven Vath, Martin Solveig and many many more… However, since the 8th of April the club closes its’ doors and starts preparing for a transformation. The building will be demolished and a new complex with a restaurant, banquet hall and a store room will take its’ place.
The reason for this change is pretty simple, as the manager Wim Van Ouytsel claims. The club used to be the only venue of this type in a radius of 300 km. As the club is located outside of the city, many customers just decide rather to party closer to home by avoiding strict alcohol controls and high fees for taxis.
