TANGO NIGHTS

De Koffiefabriek stands for a whole lot of dance, beautiful tango music, a great dancefloor and a welcoming atmosphere. Carefully we create the right ambiance: warm, open, focused on dance, music and experimentation. Intense and expressive. Open to everyone – whatever your level of experience – that typical ‘blend’ in all its diversity of dancers, music and DJs. Because we love tango in all its forms and styles, and all the music that comes with her.

FRIDAY'S closing TANGO NIGHT
FRI 17/JUN

Because we believe it is a special experience, we give it a lot of attention: the FIN-DE-SAISON edition of this season’s De Koffiefabriek, WITH live muziek.

ZINNETANGO is an Argentine tango group that formed in the spring of 2021 in Belgium. The international quartet based in Brussels consists of Argentinian, Belgian and Estonian top musicians. Their common passion for old tango tradition – that reflects the playful and optimistic flare of the “guardia vieja” and the melancholy of the “guardia nueva” – as well as “tango nuevo” is represented in their music. The ensemble brings tango to both listeners in concert halls and dancers in tango clubs.

Line up: Rodrigo Beraldi (ARG) – viool | Pablo Matías Becerra (ARG/BE) – piano | Kaspar Uljas (EE) – bandoneon | Felipe Devincenzi (ARG) – contrabas. Read more? Use this link. Hear before? Check out this link.

Previous: all levels workshop, teaching: Bennie Bartels & Astrid Maria Cerpentier. The theme: on How to Express the Story of (Live) Music, their approach: no doubt contemporary, and always playful, intense and expressive. Red more about this on the Workshop Specials page.

DJ Wouter ‘Mi Cielo’ makes an energetic mix of 80% traditional / 20% neo en non-tango. Together it will be a unique FIN-DE-SAISON event in De Koffiefabriek!

There is no such thing as the best coffee. There is good coffee, of course, and also coffee that you – usually – like the best. But sometimes you feel like a different one. Something stronger. An espresso. Or with a flavour. Caramel, for example. Or a Latte.

This is also our philosophy at De Koffiefabriek: something for everyone, in all openness. Because you may not want the same coffee every time. And not everyone likes the same coffee the best.

FRIDAY'S TANGO AFTER WORK
FRI 10/JUN

It is with a social and cozy atmosphere on and around our inviting dance floor, with the windows open, a winter garden and access to the outdoor terrace, that we put “a lovely time” and “a lovely tango” in one sentence.

DJ Wouter ‘Mi Cielo’ brings together an interesting flavor of  80% traditional, contemporary / 20% neo and non-tango  to get moving again in this beautiful place and/or to have drink at our bar with Astrid as your hostess.

 Practica starts at 21:00. 6 | 8 | 10 euro.

Neo Night 2022-04

SATURDAY'S NEO NIGHT
SAT 30/APR

We could also call it the ‘cafe latte‘ since DJ Wouter ‘Mi Cielo’ will spoil you with max 20% traditional, contemporary tango and at least 80% neo and non-tango. With new neo music, as well as with classics from this genre, he will bring a thoughtful selection that may surprise you and will make you want to move. You will find your hostess, Astrid, behind the bar and on the dance floor!
