UNITY Nightclub, the brand that brought the northern New South Wales city of Newcastle a touch of international Queer clubbing culture was unceremoniously dumped by its old venue a few months ago to the dismay of punters and locals. However, UNITY (which was not owned by one specific venue) has found a new home in the steel city, and is back with a bang tomorrow night.
UNITY's new home is Newcastle’s Crown & Anchor Hotel. The Crown & Anchor Hotel owners approached Metro Entertainment directors Aaron Little & Ashley Doran after hearing about the clubs sudden ejection from their previous home in the suburb of Hamilton.
The Crown & Anchor has dedicated its 2nd floor club level (formerly the iconic “Frostbites”) to UNITY after hearing about the plight of the club. The owners of the Crown and Anchor copped their fair share of media attention recently when they met heavy opposition from residents over plans to turn the hotel into a gentleman’s club. They have chosen however to work with UNITY - a nightclub brand which had statistically the lowest recorded incidents of alcohol-related violence in the Newcastle area in the last 12 months.
At this point UNITY promoters have advised that the club will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will play host to many of Australia’s best DJ’s, performing artists and drag queens.
UNITY will open on Friday 8 November with DIVA award winning DJ (2006-2013) KITTY GLITTER, plus a huge show line-up and some very special international guests on Saturday 9th November.
