Attica revamps in its 10th year

Attica revamps in its 10th year

In Singapore's highly competitive nightlife industry, not many nightclub concepts survive more than five years.

But home-grown club Attica at Clarke Quay is among the rare few that have bucked the trend.

On May 31, the two-storey nightclub along the banks of the Singapore River will celebrate its 10th anniversary - with a new look to boot.

The club also sees a change in management, with two of its founding partners, British permanent residents Mark Brimblecombe and Peter Antonioni, both 47, taking over operations from co-founder "Mikey" Manjit Singh, 44.

They say Mikey "has decided to take a well-earned breather and let someone else take the helm". Mr Brimblecombe and Mr Antonioni were previously sleeping partners.

The 7,200 sq ft dance venue is currently undergoing a $750,000 facelift, which will be completed by May 21. This is its first major revamp since it opened in 2004. The club will remain open during the renovation period.

By the time its anniversary bash comes around, patrons can look forward to two new VIP areas - a floating platform for DJs and an "art-light" installation in the club.

Its adjoining outdoor bar that overlooks the Singapore River will also be rebranded and named Bar Rose, a chic champagne and cocktail bar for pre- party drinks.

Noting that Attica is one of the longest-standing clubs in Singapore, Attica's vice-president of communications Ms Annabel Fox, 34, says: "More and more venues have opened so we have had to continue to work hard and evolve in terms of delivering the great club experience we are known for and never take our success for granted."
