The S.M.A.K. café will close from 1 July to 1 August and its place will be taken by the M.A.S.T. summer bar!

The S.M.A.K. café will close briefly so that the team can get everything ready for their M.A.S.T. summer bar. 

From 1 August to 16 September 2018, you are welcome to visit the Museumcafé Aan Stedelijke Tuin#Park: an oasis of calm, food, drinks, art, film, literature and pétanque. You will find the following bars and restaurants in the vicinity:

  • Mubart – our opposite neighbours: the brasserie and restaurant at the MSK.

From 1 August: M.A.S.T.

M.A.S.T. will occupy the lawn between S.M.A.K. and the Citadel Park this summer. After the Ghent Festivities it will provide an oasis of calm.

Come and join the fun at this sunny haven of peace and quiet, whether you are a local, a museum visitor or a city-tripper.
