New-look Burnham-On-Sea night club to open this weekend

A controversial night club in the centre of Burnham-On-Sea is set to re-open this weekend with a new name under new management.

Shakers in the High Street has been renamed Skye Bar and Club by its new licensees, Weston couple George Panayi and wife Katie.

The new-look club will open its doors for the first time this Saturday, May 22nd, and will then be open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9pm to 2am and on Sundays from 8pm to midnight.

Mr Panayi, who previously managed the club from 2004-2006, told "We want to make a fresh start and have therefore given it a facelift with a new name and modernised facilities."

"We'll be working closely with surrounding residents and the community to try and keep late night noise to a minimum and will also have fully trained door staff to prevent any problems."

He added: "It's an exciting time and we're both looking forward to opening this Saturday."

He said there are no current plans to use the lap dancing licence which controversially was given to the club in January 2007.

The club has recently been shut for several months after its previous managers left.
