Situated in Leopold Park in the heart of the European Quarter, the Solvay Library can host any type of event.
Behind its simple classical facade, the Bibliothèque Solvay hides a rich decor of precious wood, mosaics and stained glass windows. This listed building, designed in 1902 by famous architects Constant Bosmans and Henri Vandeveld, is one of the finest examples of eclecticism in Belgium.
Its construction was financed by the Belgian industrialist Ernest Solvay. The building was formerly home to the Institute for Sociology of the Université libre de Bruxelles.
The ground and first floors are built around a magnificent Reading Room with study rooms and galleries to either side. This prestigious setting lends a particular elegance and charm to your event. The lower ground floor has been renovated in a contemporary style and is ideal for lunches and coffee breaks during conferences or for finishing the evening around the bar.
When the weather allows it, the terrace is a very nice place for receptions, with a magnificent view on Leopold Park.
