NEW CLUB OPENINGS
It’s been relatively quiet on the new club front over the last few months, but worry not – there are two brand new rave spaces opening this month that we’re pretty excited about.
First up is The Square, a brand new club opening on the 5th floor of the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel. Open Tuesday and Thursday, they’re bringing a ‘ Berlin style party’ to the city, with the emphasis on dancing. Tomas Vindasius, general manager, said: ‘ You do not go to SQ to be seen. You go to dance. We say no to commercial nonsense and yes to the best underground music supplied by solid performers.” They open on Thursday May 21 with house heavyweight Reboot ( pictured) returning to the city, joined by Secret Circle resident Aidin Karami.
Equally exciting is the news that two- roomed club Stereo Arcade is opening up in the Double Tree by Hilton in JBR. Brought to you by the same party providers as Republique from a few years ago, they’ll be playing a strong mix of 80s/90s music, and – amazingly – they have a huge bank of vintage arcade games in the club, as well as the Angry Monkey bar which will host some of the city’s best live bands. We’ll see you by Street Fighter 2!
