Veldstraat 47, Ghent
In the mid-20th century, the pancake restaurant Salon Fritz seated about a thousand people, for whom Jean Daskalidès – the one from the famous Belgian pralines – programmed jazz orchestras on a daily basis. Jean, who had played in the jazz band The Blue Swingers, was thus about half a century ahead of both Gent Jazz and Kompass. Because there's no mistake about it: things could get pretty boisterous at Fritz’s jazz parties.
Unfortunately, nothing is left of Salon Fritz. In 1965, it was replaced by a modernist building designed by Leon Stynen, which for a long time housed the Fnac book shop.
