A great place for all your events
Do you have a birthday, a communion, a family event, or a party between friends coming up? Are you looking for a place to celebrate this event and make this a moment to remember? Or do you need to organise a meeting for your place of work? The Capitainerie of the Grand Large can offer you a nice bright reception room with all the necessary material: 16 tables, 50 chairs, 2 fridges, a sink and a dishwasher.
With its location on the first floor of the building, it also offers you a clear view over the whole of the Mons Marina. With a capacity of 60 people, the reception room is available for rent 7 days a week, until 2am, at a price of €200 per day. In addition, it is free from catering, food-trucks, etc. and if you opt to have breakfast, lunch or a cocktail, the Club House restaurant of the Grand Large, near to the room, can organise the catering. An opportunity to share a convivial moment in an exceptional setting.
An atypical structure
The whole of the Capitainerie, that at first glance looks like a pile of blocks, was designed to look like a real port installation. It plays on the dimensions but also on the materials and the colours.
The access tower, with a red metallic structure, is the central element. It is 18 metres above water level and guarantees a panoramic view over the whole site. Around it, several simple volumes overlap. A first container with metallic cladding contains all the services needed by the boaters (showers, toilets, washroom, etc.). The portholes on the sides accentuate the maritime aspect of the block. Above is the guest-house or meeting room of the Capitainerie, nestled in a long cedar wood crate with a bay window. On the other side of the access tower, a garage with white cladding appears under the guard post, which seems to be suspended in the air.
