A NEW nightclub is being opened by one of Hull's best-known veteran DJs.
Terry Spamer, who founded the Déjà Vu house music nights in Hull, is opening The Stereo in George Street, on Saturday, February 19.
The 500-capacity Stereo will be based in the same building that housed former clubs Attic and The Room before their closure left it vacant for three years.
Mr Spamer and his business partner James Hoe have spent more than £100,000 refurbishing the club.
They have installed a £28,000 state-of-the-art function one sound system.
They want to create a cool underground vibe within comfortable and clean surroundings.
Upstairs, there will be a plush seating area with sofas and a bar, while the dancefloor downstairs will have a more minimal underground feel.
Mr Spamer said: "It will be a modern club like those you see in Leeds, Manchester and London.
"A lot of clubs are either really plush and there's no atmosphere or they're really underground, but really dingy and dirty.
"We have tried to bring both elements to The Stereo."
Mr Spamer has strong links with the building, having played at The Room, which was loosely themed on the Hacienda club, from 1993 to 1996 then again from 1997 to 2000, attracting clubbers from all over East Yorkshire and beyond.
The Stereo will host a range of nights with indie music on Wednesdays and commercial dance and electro on Thursdays. Friday will see different promoters visiting the club with guest DJs and Saturday will be a Déjà Vu house night.
Mr Stamer, who has worked as a DJ in Hull for 20 years, said: "People used to come to Hull from all over to visit The Room.
"This will have elements of both Attic and The Room, but it is very much a modern club and it will have a range of different music."
