The bar, in Prince of Wales Road, will open this Friday, July 17 and while customers won’t be able to have a boogie for now, they can book a table and enjoy drinks with their family and friends.

The venue launched in the former home of Chicago’s in February 2017 and runs as a bar during the evening and transforms into a nightclub later on.

While social distancing measures remain in place, customers will need to stay seated and can book one hour and 45 minute slots with table service only and music will be kept at a lower level.

Frazer Beckles, VIP sales and event manager, said: “Before lockdown we were thriving and had to do one in one out by 11pm on most Fridays and Saturdays.

“It has been almost 16 weeks since we closed and it has been so nice to see the buzz around us reopening.”

Mr Beckles added: “We will be doing track and trace at the entrance and a host will take groups to their table and will deep clean between bookings.

“We will have a limited drinks menu and no food to start with to make sure our service is the best without putting a strain on our staff.

“We’re not doing half-price drinks at the moment as we are trying to get back on our feet and also there is the control factor of making sure people don’t get too intoxicated.”
