BOSSES OF a Bangor nightclub are hoping that a £500,000 transformation - and a new name - can help maintain its legendary reputation.
Peep, formerly known as Octagon, opens its doors for the first time on Saturday September 22, and will create around 30-40 new jobs to add to the 20 staff retained.
Construction work is well underway, and upon completion the nightspot will feature party booths, poles and a brand new terrace garden which bosses hope help contibute to a “fun and fresh” atmosphere at Peep.
General Manager Ian Roberts said: “Peep will be a total transformation, as people will see. We’ve changed the shape of the whole place. We’re hoping the terrace and garden will give a modern slant to it.”
“We just want people to come here for fun. People are going to be coming here for a reason, not just to get drunk.”
Mr Roberts added: “The Octagon will have played a major part in the lives of people in the area over the last 20 years.
“But we’re just trying to make changes. It’s going to be like a big city club. It’s a much better facility than we’ve ever had before.“
