Simon Warr the UK CEO has Spearmint Rhino taking with him the 3 newest club

Big changes at US giant Spearmint Rhino, Simon Warr the UK CEO has left the group taking with him the 3 newest clubs {Brighton, Norwich, and Glasgow} in the chain while the remaining long established 6 clubs {Bournemouth, Colnbrook, London TCR, 2 in Birmingham, and Sheffield} remain with the US management. I understand that Simon Warr will be renaming his clubs in the near future and that John Gray intends to begin UK expansion again.

A new club in the Old Market area of Bristol had applied to open despite local opposition. Southampton’s newest club “Glamour” now has a web site.

The full licenses for “Vogue” in Watford and “Paradise” in Hanley both mentioned in previous columns have both been approved by the local council. The long running saga of the “Music Palace” in Crouch End has continued and predictably the council has turned down the application for the usual spurious reasons.
