Koncept Nightclub manager Sydney Braid.

Nanaimo nightclub flirts with new ideas

Koncept Nightclub plans to create VIP lounge and add bottle service.

There will be more room to mix and mingle with friends or complete strangers at one downtown nightclub.

Koncept Nightclub is currently in the process of adding a VIP section, which will offer bottle service.

Club manager Sydney Braid said the nightclub has received a high volume of requests for bottle service since opening earlier this year.

“Koncept is adding a VIP section to make birthdays and other events more special for our customers,” Braid said. “We have had many requests for bottle service and wanted to meet the demand with a high standard.”

In addition to the VIP section, Koncept has started Sin Sundays, which takes place on the final Sunday of each month and features popular electronic dance music spun by local DJs.

“It’s a few local DJs that don’t play at Koncept on regular nights,” Braid said. “It allows people who work weekend nights to experience what Koncept is all about.”

The club, which is located on Skinner Street, opened in September following the closure of Spice Lounge.
