A RHYL nightclub which has been closed for more than two years is set to re-open in time for Easter.
The former Bar Blu, on Kinmel Street, is set to open its doors on March 22 under new ownership - hoping to give Rhyl a boost.
Mandy Griffiths and her partner Trevor Tyrie, who have lived in the area their whole life, said they were inspired to buy the former popular hotspot to help bring the night life back to the town.
“We want to bring people back into Rhyl,” said Miss Griffiths, 36. “We are hoping to give it the wow factor.
“We are also hoping to get permission to put a roof terrace - it will keep people from standing outside smoking.”
The couple, who own T T Drainage & Plumbing Services Ltd, said that they are both excited about starting this new venture.
Miss Griffiths said their plans for the new venue will see the bar split into two separate clubs.
The upstairs, which has been named The Late Lounge will be a club only, and the downstairs, named The Front Room will consist of a bar, that will also serve food and transform into a sports bar in the day.
“We are hoping it is going to be a really good thing for Rhyl - and it will bring something positive to the town.”
The couple, who live on Old Foryd Road in Kinmel Bay, said they have received great support.
“Paul Craig, who is a night club owner from Brighton has helped us with the design, and Trevor’s sister, Sandra, owns a bar so we will have her experience around us.”
Rhyl’s town centre manager, Malcolm Hall, said: “I am delighted that the facility being refurbished and will be ready to be opened again.
“I believe there is going to be a renewed interest in the town and I welcome anyone who wants to invest into Rhyl.”
