Juicy is moving from The Shipping Forecast

The drinks are cheaper than ever and there’s even pizza

Juicy, one of the most popular club nights amongst students in Liverpool, is changing its venue.

The night announced in a shock Facebook post that it won’t be holding its Fresher’s week relaunch at its usual venue on Seel Street, The Shipping Forecast, but at its new home, The Merchant on Slater Street.

Don’t despair though: on Thursday September 22nd a relaunch party will kick off at the new venue and the drinks deals are pretty exciting. £2 single/£3 double & mixer, 4 beers for £10, £2.50 jaegerbombs – all a much more appealing deal than Shipping Forecast’s old £5 doubles. The facebook post also advertises the new venue to have “a great sound system, amazing outdoor terrace and even a walk-in pizza parlour.”

The Merchant’s outdoor terrace

We spoke to Oscar Wildstyle, from Juicy Liverpool, who explained the reasons behind the move:

“We’ve been friends with the guys behind [The Merchant], Rich & Lewis, for years now, and we were really excited when they showed us round – it’s such a fantastic space.  Rich and Lewis are involved with running some of the best clubbing events in the UK, such as the Warehouse Project, Parklife Festival, Chibuku and Circus amongst many others, so they get exactly what we’re about and how to give punters the best experience.

“I think people will see for themselves what a great venue it is. For me, the jewel in their crown is the outdoor terrace, which is really spacious with covered seating areas. It makes such a difference on a night out, especially for smokers.

“Nightcrawler Pizza serve proper pizza by the slice, and it’ll be available until pretty late (maybe even all night) but we’ll probably just play it by ear for the first few weeks. I’ve eaten there before, some might say too often, and it’s amazing. They’ll also be serving drinks over the counter, as an extra place to get served rather than just the main bar.”

We asked students what they thought of the move, Alexandra, who studies English and Communications said:

I’m pissed off. But I say that like I won’t be there bumping and grinding to missy el.”

Nicki, a third year Psychology student said:

I love juicy and I love The Merchant.”
