Bar, restaurant and rooftop
Black Smoke has more to offer than just the restaurant according to Assistant Manager Tim Van Wuytswinkel: ‘The BBQ restaurant is on the third floor. We also have a bar on the first floor. But as soon as weather permits, we close the indoor bar and open up the rooftop bar on the sixth floor.’ Thanks to this combination, you can go to Black Smoke for a total experience, from cosy aperitifs to dancing on the roof.
‘We really want to offer people more than just a delicious BBQ meal,’ explains Tim. ‘We do that through live performances and club nights, and through our service. Last year, we won a Hospitality Award from the industry magazine Venuez.’
Tunify Green to warm up the crowd
Tim has been a dedicated Tunify user for years—and he’s not the only one. 2 other businesses that are part of the same group, Brasserie Appelmans and The Dirty Rabbit, also swear by Tunify. And Black Smoke even has a double subscription. ‘We often play the same music in the restaurant and on the rooftop, but sometimes we want to create different atmospheres in the different rooms,’ says Tim. ‘We used to do that with an iPod, but now we rely on our second subscription.’
