Brooklyn Mixer could be back sooner than expected

But there are going to be changes

The Seel Street club has been given the green light to re-open if it meets conditions set by authorities in a licensing hearing. 

Having previously been given a two-month closing order following allegations of ‘violence’ and ‘disorder’ within the club, a hearing has suggested a number of changes to be made within the club in order to ensure customers are safe.

The order came after suggestions that the club had failed to deal with a series of violent incidents including the use of bottles as weapons and threats involving knives.

Currently, the club is due to open in mid-March, but could open much sooner if it review its CCTV system and employ extra bouncers with further training – whilst the hearing ruled that door staff will now have to use a scanning machine to check ID’s for all entrants.

Earlier this week the club posted a status on their Facebook page hinting at their return.

The status read: “We’ll be throwing open the doors again soon (don’t believe the hype) with even bigger and better nights planned for the original home of the hard party bar on seel street ‪#‎weaintgoingnowhere

First-year Engineer, Owen Barrass told the Tab: “I thought it was a bit odd that they were closed down.

“Surely every club experiences violence like this at some point?”

While, Steph Lillie, a first-year Media student said: “I’m just hoping they’ve used the time to make the floor less sticky, it was grim.”

The club was previously home to Block Party, but the Monday Night favourite has been hosted at Heebie Jeebies since the closure – although it is expected to move back down Seel Street after the changes.
