A new nightclub is set to be opened by three nightlife entrepreneurs in Liverpool’s Stanley Street after a six-figure investment.

Due to be launched in late August, Void is the brainchild of Dan Friend, Joe McMahon and Adam Ramsey (pictured), whose ventures also include Graffiti Lounge & Bar and Wall of Fame bar and restaurant in Victoria Street.

Set in the former Wonderland site, the new nightclub is aimed at over-21s and promises to fill a gap in the market offering an exclusive experience comprising high-end table service and a premium drinks selection.

Joe said: “Our previous ventures have seen us cater to such a wide demographic, including the younger generation who like to party at Graffiti and an eclectic mix at Wall of Fame, ranging from families, corporates and tourists.

“The idea for Void was conceived when we noticed a huge gap in the nightlife market for those who want to enjoy a cosmopolitan atmosphere in the heart of the city centre with a bit of extra opulence.”

Adam added: “The inspiration for the concept came from our travels across the globe, particularly locations such as London, Marbella and Las Vegas, whereby a premium standard of drinks and high level of customer service is expected.

“We want to replicate this approach here in Liverpool so that our guests will never have to worry about their glasses being empty. By providing the ultimate table service experience, Void is set to become the ideal venue for those seeking a unique and prestigious night out.”

The 175 sq m site is being completely transformed to feature lowered ceilings to offer a more intimate atmosphere, a raised DJ booth and a mirrored wrap-around video wall.

It will be one of two new venues in the building at 10 Stanley Street which is being split into two premises. A ground floor bar, offering a different concept under the same ownership, is set to open later this month.

In addition to supporting the ongoing development of the local area, Void will create around 30 jobs ranging from security to bar and hosting staff.

Dan said: “We’re glad to be a part of the resurgence of the business district of Liverpool city centre. In recent months, we’ve noticed a number of exciting new happenings in the form of both exciting independents and exclusive chain bars and restaurants set up shop – it’s great to see this side of our city thriving.”
