£100,000 Revamp brings new opportunities for Club Gatsby & The Gatsby Lounge

01 November 2017

One of Wakefield City Centre’s iconic nightclubs, Fanny & Bacardi has recently undergone a £100,000 refurbishment and rebrand, embracing a new identity as Club Gatsby & The Gatsby Lounge, Bank Street. Creating more than 20 jobs for local residents and supporting Wakefield’s ever changing evening economy.

Embracing the 1920’s theme and décor Club Gatsby & The Gatsby Lounge is a beautiful high-end venue, aiming to change the face of the over 25’s evening offering in Wakefield.  With glamourous feel good music entertainment on a weekend there is also quality jazz nights, and entertainment on a Sunday with LIVE music.

The Gatsby Lounge has captured the decadence of the 1920s embracing a modern "Old Hollywood" twist with its very own Gatsby dancers. The recent investment is not only changing the face of things but the business model as well.

Formerly known for being open two nights per week as a Nightclub week The Gatsby Lounge, now has the potential to open up to a full 7 days a week, as a daytime corporate venue.  

The changes made have placed the business in a position to offer social hire for events, meetings, parties and functions. 

Dale Alderton, Director, at Club Gatsby & The Gatsby lounge says;

‘’Wakefield is changing, the variety of high-end quality establishments is now increasing and I feel confident that we have rebranded the venue to meet the requirements of this new clientele now visiting the district from far and wide!’’

Sunday 22nd October saw the successful launch of the first live jazz afternoon tea sessions.
