Edinburgh's Citrus Club to reopen following takeover
A CAPITAL insitution is set for a new lease of life when it re-opens its doors.
Late night club 4042 will take over the Citrus Club venue on Grindlay Street, which showcased live music for more than 25 years.
4042 is the brainchild of Edinburgh’s DJ Prospect and Shandy Martin, a manager at the Montpeliers hospitality group which includes Opal Lounge and Tigerlily.
DJ Prospect has enjoyed success across the UK and as well as weekly club slots in Edinburgh. He has played for Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber as well as appearing at Glastonbury and T in the Park.
Opening until 3am every night, 4042 will feature A-list DJs and artists and provide something for all serious clubbers and locals looking to unwind after work. The music will range from hip-hop, r&b and house.
DJ Prospect said: “We want to create a 3am party spot in the Capital which isn’t a club.
“A place where you can go after finishing work at Standard Life across the road, join early evening and party till 3am.”
He added: “Being operators, promoters and DJs, we want to create our own perfect night out experience from drinks to entertainment.
“After being in LA for a few months at a time, I found that these cool 3am party spots were the new thing. It wasn’t always the usual bottle-popping nightclubs. When I came back to Edinburgh and was back in the club circuit, I felt that was exactly what was missing. I wanted to create a place where the parties I throw can be a daily business, rather than just a weekly promoter-run club night.”
