Redefining The Class Of Events

A welcoming and inspiring space for professional and private events and meetings


In the ballroom of the then Beaujean/Carlton hotel, wonderful music was undoubtedly heard. Was there a Viennese waltz, a polka, or later even a foxtrot? You can just imagine the dressed ladies and gentlemen. It should come as no surprise to you that we want to bring back the splendour of yesteryear! 

The excellent acoustics of the room and the arrangement of the agora allow to create an open salon atmosphere that is ideal for song and chamber music concerts.

Beaujean’s artistic direction is delighted to develop a concert series in this beautiful setting. You will be able to experience first-hand how top soloists from home and abroad treat you to fascinating programmes. Or how carefully selected young talents introduce themselves to you. For example, the history, practice and meaning of song culture will be made accessible in a creative, innovative and sustainable way. Beaujean thus becomes a concert location with a focus on reflection and dialogue, a platform for musicians with a story.

After the concerts you can enjoy a delicious drink in the Beaujean café in the presence of the musicians. In this way you travel with us to the past, the present and the future.

About Us

Beaujean is a multifunctional space. The IT company Pau has its headquarters there. As part of ‘People First’, Anthony and Paule Iudicello Peeters designed the space as a special workplace. A space where people like to come together, be inspired and be creative and where they can work quietly.
Due to the extensiveness of the meeting rooms, Beaujean also offers external companies the opportunity to hold meetings in this special setting. Due to its central location in the city, the Beaujean is also very accessible by public transport and by car.
Beaujean also has excellent acoustics, high spaces and open accessibility. It is a welcoming and inspiring space for professional and private events. It is particularly suitable for song and chamber concerts followed by a reception.
Designed as a venue to highlight the arts and serve the community.. Both beautiful and practical, Beaujean offers flexible and diverse rental options.


This neoclassical mansion has been included in the inventory of immovable heritage. The house was designed by master builder L. Van Opstal. The house is part of an authentic row of mansions on the Frankrijklei, whose 19th-century streetscape has never been so well and completely preserved as here. The house is an example of the typical buildings that were built in the 1860s and 1870s on the new plots that were built along the Frankrijklei. The mansion was transformed in 1919-20 by the sisters Marie and Jeanne Beaujean into “Hotel Carlton”, a family pension with about 25 rooms and a ballroom. In 1926-27, the Crédit Colonial et Commercial bank had the building adapted and expanded into an office building.

Recently, a large-scale and unique renovation was carried out in which 7 apartments and 1 penthouse were renewed: Beaujean Residence. The design by M2 architects gives the historic building a contemporary and stylish character. Various authentic elements are preserved. This is immediately apparent in the entrance hall with its moldings and marble floors. Graceful French balconies, ceilings up to 5 meters high and parquet in every room give the property an exclusive character. The original vaults in the basement are preserved. The ballroom was completely renovated and furnished by Context Architects on behalf of Pàu – a digital full service agency – into a modern, pleasant workplace.
