Revellers attend new club opening
A NEW over 21s club flung open its doors to excited Weston revellers on Friday.
Many dressed-up partygoers attended Club Tabu on the Boulevard for its opening night.
The town’s mayor, Cyril King, opened the venue, which has undergone an extensive renovation and features a cocktail and champagne bar.
The Kimitri family, which owns several businesses in Weston and Bristol, is behind the new venture.
Owner Kerry Kimitri said: “Weston needed a sophisticated venue tailored toward the older customers who do not wish to mingle with kids in the night clubbing trade.

“After the tenants left from the Players Lounge I felt this was the perfect opportunity to rejuvenate the building with a complete refurbishment.
“Many residents in the town had always been opposed to the strip bar and its previous establishment Vamps, which was a pole dancing club.

“I felt it was time the community were heard and I have created a classy venue for people to enjoy a safe and friendly night out.”
Mr Kimitri said as it is further away from the main night clubbing area the club does not attract troublemakers.
Customers can apply for a free platinum membership card, which allows free entry and queue jumping privileges.
There is also a VIP area and the dress code is smart.
