Shifts for Fakbar

Fakbar 't ElixIr is the faculty bar for engineering students. It's the ideal place where you can momentarily forget about the stress of your studies and fully enjoy a drink with some music. Throughout the academic year, our place opens its doors from Sunday to Thursday starting at 10 p.m. for anyone in the mood for a good party! Occasionally, larger events are also organized, such as a Black Light Party or Foam Party.

't ElixIr is located at the Tervuursevest 60. See Google Maps below 🌍

👕 Lost and found

It can always happen that on a crowded (drunk) night, things may disappear or be forgotten. However, the team always leaves the remaining coats hanging on the coat racks when closing. This means that in case of loss or not finding your belongings, it's best to come back to the Fakbar the next day to check if your items are still there. You can also take a look at our Facebook page where we store photos of lost items.

🎧 DJ

Do you have what it takes to start a party? Can you mix all music seemingly from one to the next? 't ElixIr is always looking for fresh talent that wants to play some beats in our bar or introduce a new style.
