Flash new nightclub aims to put Cape Town on world's party map


The doors open today at Cape Town's first "super club", a R35-million venue styled on London's most ostentatious party venues.

The super-luxury Trinity, in Bennett Street off Prestwich Street in Green Point, has been built in a historic former warehouse. Spread over five floors are restaurants, bars, a member's lounge and a state-of-theart dance floor. Just the sound, visual and lighting equipment – the acclaimed Funktion One system, which is a first for Africa - cost R7m.

The club is the vision of Kevin King and Fergus D'Arcy, two property and business entrepreneurs whose previous projects have included the Hippo Boutique hotel in Gardens and the Caledon Casino, Hotel and Spa.

Cape Town Tourism CEO Mariette du Toit Helmbold said yesterday that the development would give Cape Town more clout on the world's party map.

"Visitors and locals love the fact that Cape Town offers gritty authenticity alongside total luxury.

"Trinity will add to Cape Town's reputation as the ultimate place to play and party this summer. An investment of this magnitude also shows real confidence in Cape Town's long-term tourism prospects," she said.

King told the Cape Argus: "Green Point contains some wonderful historic buildings. Our building was a wharfside warehouse built in 1908 and was initially adjacent to the original Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

"We have modelled this club on the finest, most celebrated clubs in the world - specifically all top party capitals such as London, Dublin, Paris, Ibiza, Berlin and New York.

"We will also be introducing to Cape Town technology never seen here before, such as Funktion One, the audio-visual system used at famed nightclubs such as Privilege, the largest club in Europe on the Spanish party island of Ibiza, the Berghain club in Berlin, Germany, the Cielo club in New York and Armani in Dubai."

To transform the old building, bought for R15m, King and D’Arcy have spent R20m entirely refurbishing the building’s insides.

Trinity will initially employ over 100 full-time staff.

It will host events like intimate classical and jazz recitals, live international and local band acts, comedy evenings, and fashion shows. It will also host local and international DJs.

We have a Shebeen section. If its meant to be in this section at least provide a thread title similar to others.
Excuse me if I had soiled your precious little Cape Town section. WTF?
Trinity- Jesus Mother and Joseph, here I come!
