Artful witness to the past - Jacques Jordaens

Jacob or actually Jacques Jordaens (1593 - 1678) was a painter from the Antwerp School, which also included Peter Paul Rubens and Antoon van Dyck.

The painter's first name is Jacques . In the baptismal register this is phonetically noted as Jac , spelling that he also used to sign his paintings. Whenever he signed a letter, the painter wrote Jacques Jordaens throughout his life. In the 19th century his signature was wrongly completed to Jacob.

Im(t)movable heritage

The Jordaenshuis is the parental home of Jacques Jordaens. The property is located in a courtyard between Hoogstraat and Reyndersstraat in the heart of Antwerp's historic city centre.

The sympathetic courtyard and the historic building together form a new event location in Antwerp. And to pay tribute to the original owner's real name, the venue was renamed Jacques .

In the heART of Antwerp

The modularity of Jacques can be used very widely. There are different spaces available, and also very easy to combine! It is the ideal location for all your private events such as wedding parties, anniversaries, baby showers, communion and other family celebrations. But of course companies can also go there for their staff parties, seminars and meetings.

On the ground floor you have the intimate courtyard and 3 available spaces. There are 4 break-outs available on the first floor and mezzanine.

There is also more than enough space in the beautifully vaulted cellars for presentation sets and beautiful dinner settings. The cellar is also very suitable for a dance party at night, too.

Indoor and outdoor

There are 3 rooms available on the ground floor, all of which can be combined with the beautiful courtyard.

• Suitable for receptions, walking dinners, presentations or networking moments.

• Extra bar space in the courtyard suitable for similar occasions

• Courtyard: ultimate setting for your successful outdoor concept

Shared use between all rooms on the ground floor is possible.

Multifunctional event space

On the first floor and mezzanine of Jacques, several rooms are available to organize your ideal team meeting or team building. There are up to 4 rooms at your disposal to organize everything, and can of course be combined with the ground floor or basement rooms!

Jacques basement

In the basement there are two hotspots for the organization or follow-up of your event! Fully equipped with a sound system according to your wishes, you can give the presentation of your dreams, organize refined dinners or enjoy dancing until the early hours.


Jacques is a particularly modular location with a total capacity of up to 250 people. In the context of your wishes and needs, we are happy to propose the best room(s)! The terrace is a nice oasis of peace in the middle of all the rooms. The layout of the rooms is always in consultation with you!


Quality catering is essential for a successful event or party. We provide a culinary total experience with a personal interpretation; whether it concerns a surprising reception with culinary snacks or a conceptual walking or seated dinner. At Jacques, the catering section can be fully developed in-house, but an external catering partner is also welcome.

Ecological Commitment

We attach the utmost importance to an ecologically responsible approach to your event:

• we want to prevent food waste and therefore prefer not to propose buffet formulas

• we only use seasonal products that are locally available

• we do not process industrially farmed animals or endangered species

• we do not use disposable materials (plates, cutlery, ...) or single-use plastic items


Jacques is easily accessible, both by public transport and by car. After all, the Groenplaats metro station is within walking distance. And if you come by car, you can park in one of the public car parks in the area, such as the Brabo and Groenplaats car parks.
