Salvos is back: Here’s what we know
It will reopen on Wednesday 21st July
Popular York club Salvos will be reopening on Wednesday 21st July.
The club shut its doors due to the pandemic in March 2020 but told The York Tab: “We can’t wait to get open again” on the 21st.
The opening night, tickets for which can be bought at Illuminati Events, will be Sneaky Disco, an event that was previously held at Kuda. Sneaky Disco will be held on Wednesday nights outside of university term time.
York students will be happy to hear that Koi Samui, a popular Friday night student event, will return on the Friday of the same week. Sports Wednesdays will also return from September so have your fancy dress at the ready!
Saturdays, Salvation told us, will be on a first-come, first-served basis with entry price at £6 and £5 for students.
Dave Sear, manager at Salvation told The York Tab: “We can’t wait to get open again and welcome our customers from the student community, especially those that have turned 18 over the last 16 months.”
The club has also undergone renovations during its absence. Sear continued: “We have had a paint job, installed a new sound system, and refurbished the female toilets. New carpet arrives next Monday!”
A new card-only system has been introduced at the bar which “should make service quicker and safer.”
The York Tab spoke to Salvos DJ Jason Reilly who said: “The re-opening of Salvation is something I’ve been eagerly waiting for and I’m happy to confirm that I will be returning to play at the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday sessions. I’ve had so many Instagram and Snapchat messages following their re-opening announcement. Everyone is mega excited to get back to the club. It’s going to be crazy!”
He continued: I’ve got so much love for the people of York. We always have the best nights together and I can’t wait for many more to come. See you all soon!”
The club is also recruiting bar and support staff. Those interested should email [email protected]
After several scares of permanent closure, many York students will be very happy to hear that Salvos is back for good.
