THE latest edition to Wirral’s vibrant club scene, Zu, opened its doors for the first time last weekend, setting a standard to take it into the New Year.
The former Stairways on Oliver Street West, Birkenhead, has undergone a major redesign and refurbishment and now boasts a refined lounge area, as well as a dance floor overseen by some of the region’s finest DJs.
The first floor now emanates a plush lounge bar feel, with plasma screens dotted around the walls, subdued lighting and leather booths, while resident DJs pump out an eclectic mix of R’n’B, funk and all the classics.
Step up a level onto the second floor and find DJs Dave Graham, Anton Powers, Lee Butler and Peter Crawford getting everyone up dancing.
Friday and Saturday saw revellers joined by fire-eaters and stilt-walkers, alongside live performances from WI-FI and 2funky2.
Promotions manager Peter Crawford said: “Clubbers that found room on the dance floor really seemed to appreciate the atmosphere and embrace the dimensions our new club has to offer.”
This weekend Zu Club will continue with its ambition to bring a superclub mentality to the peninsula, with Radio City’s Les Calvert lined up for Friday night.
Saturday will see the venue welcoming highly regarded club tour Sugar Dummy House, who will bring their unique blend of uplifting house and dance anthems.
And with events planned for Boxing Night and New Year’s Eve, it looks like Zu could become a permanent fixture on every self-respecting clubbers’ itinerary.
