This year the New Year theme is inspired by the décor of the Tentation’s own dining hall, so the party will find itself completely at home here. Right now, this theme is top of the trends, already recreating the atmosphere of luxury and amusement : America’s years of the “Golden Twenties” and also of Prohibition.
These were boom years for Americans, who amassed wealth due to the automobile and oil industries. Unfortunately, after these glamour days there was a sudden and vertiginous fall in the economy with disastrous consequences. Share speculation was rife, values at the Stock Exchange plummeted and banks and companies closed their doors for ever. From October to December 1929, the numbers of people in the dole queue soared from half a million to 4 million. Who still boasted about the joys of the “American Way of Life”? The fallout was felt throughout the whole country, but it was mostly the working class that absorbed the shock of this depression.
The 1920s and 1930s were years also marked by Prohibition, when both the production and sale of alcohol was banned. However, an underground economy soon sprang up.
In New York, for example, there were tens of thousands of underground bars. Night clubs, those symbols of the “Roaring Twenties” with their parties and the new craze for jazz multiplied rapidly, and so did cellars and secret passages like those of the 21 Club on 52nd Street. The smuggled alcohol (called “moonshine”) sold in nightclubs came from illegal stills that produced alcohol that was often adulterated.
This era, so insecure, was also a source of inspiration. Does that ring a bell? Can’t you see it all around you?
Let’s not forget that this decade 1920-1930 defined the brand of America as a country of music, fashion, glamour, luxury and party-going. That’s why we are inviting you to revisit that era, to party just as they did in the Roaring Twenties, as the best way to celebrate into the New Year.

For more than 130 years this out-of –the-ordinary building was the home of the fabric shop of the same name “La Tentation”. There they sold bales of the most exquisite fabrics in Brussels. This was a shop with a clientele coming from all over Belgium, coming to seek out fabrics, oriental rugs and furs from Russia. Today the name conjures up a completely different role: hosting the most prestigious evening events in Brussel.
This huge neo-classical “flagship” building dates from 1858 and is built in red brick, large windows, glass, wood and cast iron. It was completely restored about a dozen years ago and today looks really beautiful. This was done to provide a luxury venue for the most glittering events in central Brussels.
So you see, this is a truly exceptional venue located right in the heart of Brussels!
