Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? It seems like only yesterday we were walking through a pile of rubble trying desperately to imagine a soul club in it’s place!
Two years on we have had some fantastic events, won Best New Venue last year, have held sell out theme parties such as Prince night, Bowie night and our infamous Stranger Things Halloween party. We’ve launched new club brands such as Age of Consent alternative 80s night and Paid in Full classic Hip Hop night, had reggae BBQ’s with Pour on the Sauce, had tons of incredible live bands play, had special guest DJ’s such as Nick Power from The Coral and Paul Smith from Maximo Park and we’ve even taken our trademark soul vibes to other venues such as Birmingham Town Hall, The Old Crown, One Trick Pony and much more. We could go on, and on, and on…. we’ve really been having a right old good time!
So we’d love YOU, our supporters to come along and celebrate our 2nd birthday party with us, we’ve kept door prices cheap but still with a fabulous programme of events!

Summer of Love 50th Anniversary Party
The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people, mostly young people sporting hippie fashions of dress and behavior, converged in San Francisco’s neighborhood Haight-Ashbury.
We recreate that 1967 San-Fran vibe on Sunday 16th July at The Night Owl
