This is the music temple par excellence of Sint-Niklaas and the Waasland region. Big names of the Belgian and international scene are regularly on the bill. De Casino also programs jazz, world music and less commercial music genres, as well as up and coming local talent.
The imposing building of De Casino in the Stationsstraat was built in 1852 on behalf of local notables for the cultural activities of the Liberal Party. Shortly after World War I, De Casino was converted into a cinema.
Cinema Casino closed its doors in 1969. After that, the building gradually fell into disrepair, until it was renovated in 2009 by the former concert organization De Spiegel (now De Casino). The café of the same name is located underneath the concert hall. It has become one of the most popular night spots in the city.
