Residents of the Harbour City will have a new venue to show off their dance moves as a new nightclub is set to open this weekend.
Koncept Nightclub, located at 240 Skinner St., will hold a grand opening party Saturday (Sept. 13), which will feature DJ Jesse James, DJ Goofio (Hesh) and David Mumford.
“We’re basically trying to have all different types of music in this one night so that we can get all kinds of different people to come in and check it out,” said manager Sydney Braid.
Koncept Nightclub, which fills the vacancy left by the Spice Lounge after it closed its doors last month, will be giving the first 50 people who enter the club on Saturday free VIP passes for the remainder of the year.
“I want to provide a fresh, elegant venue that attracts all different partiers,” Braid said. “Whether they are looking to relax and socialize or go out and get lost on the dance floor, I want this club to be the perfect option for everyone.”
As with most nightclubs, Koncept will have a cover charge, but it has a twist.
“A third will go to our local entertainer, a third will go to the child development centre and another third is going to be put into a pot for a chance to win at the end of the night for our customers,” Braid explained.
The concept behind having a pot of money that people can win each night is simple.
“We want to give them a reason to stay,” Braid said. “We wanted to give everyone the chance of winning the pot and feeling special.”
