Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page - by James Lawren­son

A NEW night­club is set to open its doors to cus­tomers in Ash­ford to­mor­row (Fri­day) night.

Elu­sive is lo­cated on the site of the for­mer Ku­dos club op­po­site Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional sta­tion.

The kmfm cruis­ers will be in at­ten­dance as the first cus­tomers are wel­comed at 8pm.

Tick­ets are £6 all night and the club will be strictly over21s only, with a smart dress­code in place.

The club will then be open be­tween Thurs­days and Sun­day, with a late li­cence on Fri­days and Satur­days un­til 3am.

The new own­ers only took over the build­ing two weeks ago and say they will em­ploy about 20 staff, in­clud­ing door staff and bar­tenders.

Ini­tially only the ground floor of the club will be open, but the own­ers plan to ex­tend onto the up­per three floors in the early spring.

Man­ager Brooke Bai­ley said: “We’ve taken on a chal­lenge in open­ing a club that hasn’t been open in four years.

“We want to at­tract the higher end of the mar­ket, the more dis­cern­ing club­bers who of­ten have to go to Lon­don for a good night out.

At­mos­phere

“Elu­sive will play a wide va­ri­ety of mu­sic, with the main em­pha­sis on a comfortable at­mos­phere, a beau­ti­ful en­vi­ron­ment and friendly ser­vices.”

He said the mu­sic will vary from night to night, with funky house, R&B and soul clas­sics on Fri­days and Satur­days.

Sun­day will see a more re­laxed at­mos­phere, with chill-out mu­sic and ska fea­tur­ing heav­ily.

The man­age­ment also plan to host bands and show­case lo­cal tal­ent to make Elu­sive a more di­verse venue.

Spe­cial events for Box­ing Day night and New Year’s Eve are al­ready be­ing planned.
