Cargo Club (formerly Red & Blue) *

Formerly: Red & Blue

Man on dance floor
Antwerp's most expansive and famous gay dance mecca, Cargo Club (formerly Red & Blue) is known as one of the hot spots of northern Europe. Opened in November 1997 and still under the same ownership, the sizeable one-room mecca has an industrial feel, with name DJs spinning mostly house until 7 in the morning. Every Saturday the club takes great pleasure in staging the only weekly male-only dance party in Belgium, with go-go boys, international guests and occasional erotic shows all part of the package – Antwerp at its most humpy-thrivey. Lesbians had their moment on the dance floor with monthly Cafedelove and Cafedeluxe, now departed, albeit with occasional Cafedelove parties [see entry]. Sundays are given over to Studio 54— a more gay than straight night that features stage performances by four or five drag queens. Changed name from Red & Blue to Cargo Club in early 2017.
