Chaosbar Leuven

The chaosbar in Leuven started when some people got really drunk (honesty is everything) and decided to build a DIY bar. That's it basically - and one week later the bar was there. Starting out in the dungeon of the Vaartkom-squat in Leuven in 2008, the chaosbar moved to a squat at the Aarschotsesteenweg after an eviction, and ended up in squat Plan Z in the Weldadigheidsstraat, still in Leuven (even though this building got a notice that it has to be evicted as well on 06/10/2011 - so who knows what the future brings!). Hosting non-profit concerts, bar-evenings, movie-nights, karaoke, and a bit known for the afterparties. The bar is non-profit, any profit goes to autonomous/anarchist projects like anarchist libraries, prisoner support, antifascist action, squats, autonomous social projects and so on. The list is endless!
