New nightclub is opening in Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth
A NEW nightclub is opening in the city.
Atik will open its doors in Gunwharf Quays at the site which was Tiger Tiger, before it was changed to Eden, on March 28.
The new 2,000-capacity club, which is spread over three rooms and two floors, has recently undergone a complete overhaul ready for the launch, which will host DJs such as Joel Corry and James Hype.
The venue has been stripped back to its foundations, kitted out with advanced lighting systems dominated by custom built L.E.D screens and packed with state-of-the-art sound systems and an array of special effects including CO2 cannons, pyrotechnics and lasers.
There will be three rooms - Paradise, Atik and Genesis.
The Eden restaurant, which is upstairs, will remain, with the rest of the venue being rebranded as Atik.
The two will be completely separate, with separate entrances.
The club is holding a launch party on Saturday, March 28 with DJ Joel Corry headlining, disco head and roller dancers, giveaways, live acts and confetti cannon.
ATIK’s general manager, Dan Swan, said: ‘I can’t wait to open Atik’s doors to the public. It’s an exciting concept that will boast the very best in DJ entertainment throughout the year, and where groups of friends can come together for a great night out – whether belting out pop classics on the dancefloor of Disco, escaping the humdrum of life in Paradise or immersing in the Ibiza spirit of Atik.’
Also returning to the site will be the popular student nights on Thursdays, run by student events company Hijack.
The club offers VIP options such as private booths and premium table packages.
There are currently 13 Atik clubs across the UK.
Tiger Tiger closed in May, after being bought by Pryzm operators, The Deltic Group, and reopened in July as Eden.
