IF you want a club ex­pe­ri­ence mixed with VIP sta­tus then Club 263 is the place to be in Bu­l­awayo.

The joint which opened its doors on Thurs­day night amid pomp and fan­fare joins Copa Cubana, BAC and Pri­vate Lounge as new spots in the city. Its open­ing is only good for pa­trons now have a wide range of choices to have fun at dur­ing the up­com­ing sum­mer sea­son.

Hun­dreds of pa­trons thronged Club 263 which had a daz­zlingly spec­tac­u­lar fire­works dis­play out­side its premises that lit up Bu­l­awayo’s night sky. The crowd was a mix­ture of youth­ful ex­u­ber­ance and the ma­ture.

Pierc­ing the night sky were colour­ful fire­works that would shoot up with some swirling be­fore they burst loudly fol­lowed by a fiery splat­ter in the sky. As this hap­pened, some in the crowd screamed and cheered.

In­side the club it was Ladies Night hosted by Queen and Obama where cell­phones, high heel shoes, makeup, per­fume and lin­gerie were be­ing given away in com­pe­ti­tions.

Some of the games would com­pare shoes to see which was the most ex­pen­sive and beau­ti­ful.

A bunch of ladies left in a huff claim­ing that their friend’s high heel shoes were more beau­ti­ful and ex­pen­sive than those that had won the com­pe­ti­tion!

Yes­ter­day it was the DJs Marathon with a clash be­tween Bu­l­awayo, Mutare, Botswana and Harare wheel spin­ners bat­tling it out. Those rep­re­sent­ing Bu­l­awayo were DJs Nospa, Slimza, Kead Wikead, Liz, Slamma, and Crazy Black, from Botswana VJ Dreazy, from Mutare Styles and for Harare were Oskid, Fu­jee, Garry B along­side the nightspot’s res­i­dent DJs Mel­low T and Emity Smooth.

The club is di­vided into three with a spa­cious dance floor for those who want to dance them­selves to a stand­still. There are three bars that keep peo­ple well fu­elled with al­co­holic bev­er­ages that keep them on their feet on the dance floor with the cheap­est be­ing $1,50 and the most ex­pen­sive be­ing $50 for se­lected whiskeys.

There is a kitchen that serves food to pa­trons with an ar­ray of dishes such as pork chops and mar­i­nated chicken to keep them well fed dur­ing the night.

The VIP area is for those who want to be away from the club sec­tion and sit on com­fort­able so­fas while sip­ping their ex­pen­sive whiskeys.

The down­side how­ever of the VIP side is that there is a speaker blurt­ing out the same tunes from the dance floor. What could help the club man­age­ment is to have dif­fer­ent mu­sic be­ing played con­trolled by a CD player and at a mel­low tone just for am­biance.

Co-or­di­na­tor of Club 263 Ta­tenda Gwatidzo said the launch gave him con­fi­dence.

“It was an in­ter­est­ing and en­cour­ag­ing launch. From now we’re go­ing to be launch­ing an en­ter­tain­ment cal­en­dar that’ll see us invit­ing DJs from all cor­ners of Zim­babwe. Ev­ery Thurs­day will be ladies night,” said Gwatidzo.

Dur­ing the week Club 263 was giv­ing away ex­pen­sive whiskeys and T-shirts to lucky win­ners who would have liked their Face­book page.

Last week the pre-launch party of the club was held at Harts­field Tshisa Nyama and had a bumper crowd that was served with free drinks and braai by man­age­ment. — @ bon­ganinkunzi
