A club with history

Hotel Arena is located in the old Sint Elisabeth Gesticht (psychiatric hospital). The psychiatric hospital took in older women who were either unable to care for themselves or who needed long term nursing. The hospital had several different classes of care depending on the income of the patient and included one for women without incomes. The complex had several uses before being turned into a four-star hotel and nightclub in 2003.
