Cornwall Nightclubs facing Extinction as L2, Vanilla, Zone and others shut down

Over the years Newquay has experienced drastic plunge in Nightclubs which in turn has affected the number of Nightclubs in Cornwall. The origin of this event can be traced to the over pricing of alcohol, expensive entrance fees, ridiculous leasing rate and cultural shift with club goers; who prefer to device cheaper means to throw their own parties.

A recent survey was conducted in Britain which revealed 43% of Britons preferred bars with dance floors rather than clubbing. The survey proved to be accurate as dancers were clustered in White Hart Pub at Truro; which has also witnessed the closure of Vanilla on Duke Street, this has left Truro with just The office. It is arguable that the city’s night life changed in 2015 when Calenick Street witnessed the closure of the popular L2, but for a number of people the highlights were, when The Loft on the Lemon Quay and Chicago Rock Café in Calenick Street were open.

West Cornwall is left with Boxx ( formerly shooters) in Helston while Redruth and Camborne experienced a shock as Zone (formerly Twilight Zone) which was famous Nightclub shut down in West Cornwall.

Falmouth still enjoys a bubbling nightlife as it has 51 years old Club International and a refurbished Mango’s club open for business.

This might probably be a drift peculiar to Newquay, which has witnessed a tremendous decrease in Night clubs, as Tom Thumb and The Dead Famous has replaced dance clubs leaving Sailors and Berties, with Eden’s future uncertain. While Eclipse in Bodmin, The Club in St. Austell, Storm in Launceston and BED in Bude are still open, the future of Nightclubs in Cornwall remains uncertain.
