welcome in 9 beaufort

The culinary banqueting hall 9 Beaufort is located on the 9th floor of the MAS / Museum aan de Stroom. Since 2011 we offer gastronomic experiences enjoying a spectacular view of Antwerp.

Het Eilandje (the Little Island) is an old port area filled with character, located between the historical inner city and the current port. After the opening of the MAS / Museum aan de Stroom in May 2011 this area evolved into a vibrant part of the city by the water.

For standing buffets (with waiter service) and receptions we have a capacity of 180 guests and for seated dinners up to 120 persons.
