For the first time, the Duvelorium Cafe will be opening its doors, providing a warm and welcoming space to enjoy the intense flavors of the traditional Duvel beer.

Designed by Will Erens, the founder of the Puresang design studio, the cafe is meant to resonate with the beer by emulating its traditional crafting and strong flavor. Erens explains that he used loam, "one of the oldest building materials in history," to create an environment of warmth and serenity.

The exposed brick wall is a nod to the old brewery, giving the cafe a cozy ambiance that may be old-fashioned, but definitely isn't boring. The prismatic stain glass ceilings of the Duvelorium Cafe and the arching windows creates excitement and makes the cafe look like a house of worship.
