South nightclub relaunch with Clint Boon

Inspiral Carpets and XFM star Clint Boon and Tokyo Industries - the operational partners of Hooky’s Fac251 Club - will be unveiling the new look South nightclub on South King Street, with a grand opening party on Friday 26 November at 11pm.

A new secret courtyard in the centre of the building has been transformed into a Lower Manhattan outdoor cinema space, complete with its own bar screening of cult artists such as Velvet Underground and Nico & the Stones.

The venue is sporting an innovative refit with designer Ben Kelly returning to the city to undertake the re-design. He has modernised the space whilst adding a bespoke Funktion One sound system and a ‘body sonic infrabass’ dance floor system. Tokyo Industries managing director Aaron Mellor has described the refit as “a sonic weapon - something you’d invade countries with rather than drop in a micro basement club.”

The indie basement club was opened 15 years ago by Paul Cons, the Haçienda’s former promotions manager and acquired by Tokyo Industries in May this year. South has a history in cutting edge parties from the seminal ‘Rinky Dink’ to ‘Board,’ where South featured an in-club skateboard ramp.

Whilst Saturday 27 November sees Clint Boon return to host his hugely popular regular Saturday night from 11pm to 3am, the rest of the week will be seeing a shakeup of events. Expanding club nights from two to seven nights a week, each week night will have its own theme.

Mondays are branded as ‘Remake Remodel’ and will be playing the best of alternative and rock ‘n’ roll music. Tuesdays and Fridays are bargain nights with entry and drinks priced at 80p and £1 respectively. House and techno music will be filling the venue on Wednesdays whilst dubstep and drum and bass will be the soundtrack to Thursdays.
