Funke is closed until further notice.


We welcome everyone. Regardless of their origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion and age.

If you’d like to be violent, discriminatory, racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, go elsewhere, ideally to a therapist.

We keep an open mind as to how people want to express themselves. We expect our visitors to do the same.

No pictures inside please. Live in the moment.

No drugs. No reckless behaviour.

We reserve the right to remove visitors from Funke who disrespect these principles.

Arrival at our doors does not guarantee entry, even with a pre-purchased ticket. Vibe-busting behaviour will be kept outside.

If at some point during your visit, something feels off, don’t hesitate to speak to one of our staff. We are here for you.

We’re in this together. Keep an eye out for each other. Enjoy.

Practical (club nights)

Doorsale is card only - no cash.

There are lockers - you need a coin (€1, €2) to use them.

To get you through the night, we serve homemade snacks as ‘Het Tussendoortje’. Ask for them at the bar.


To enter Funke, you must climb a flight of stairs. Our team is always happy to help if that should prove difficult. Let us know in advance if you plan on coming over and we’ll be there for you.


Nested in the vibrant Bij Sint-Jacobs square, Funke inhabits three floors in a 19th-century building that used to be a townhouse, a furniture store called Meubelen Rita, a people’s café, and a brown pub.

Funke entails a small-capacity nightclub, Het Verdiep (a versatile floor that can be used as an exhibition space) and a lot of nooks and crannies. An action-packed, pocket-sized cultural hub in the centre of Ghent.
