A post on the STEREO Facebook page read: âUnfortunately our lovely little Love & Potions cocktail bar was caught in a fire this morning and will be closed for the next few weeks.
âCustomers with functions and reservations are informed now. “
STEREO opened in July on Freedom Day, welcoming returning clubbers to the city’s nightlife.
Formerly the Atik Nightclub in the Spensleys Emporium Grade II listed building on the corner of Albert Road and Zetland Road, it has been renovated and refurbished to provide a modern and versatile bar and event space.
The Love & Potions Cocktail Bar is located on its middle floor.
Fortunately, the main part of the STEREO hall was not damaged by the fire and the club and the club will still be open on Tuesday for its YOYO event.
âThe fire systems and doors were in place so the main part of the building is intact, which is a big relief,â Gary Dobson said from the site.
âIt’s a bit of a punch, but these things are sent to try us out.
“We have a professional company coming to review it.”
