A new nightclub is thundering its way into town this
Christmas and its bound to hit you like a bolt of lightning,
If it hasn't already.
Storm Nightclub on stockwell lane will open its doors this
festive season to an eager crowd of party seekers looking
to enjoy the festive spirit in the best possible way they
And there is no doubt that this, the latest and greatest
spot in town is the place to do just that.
The nightclub which was officially opened by Boyzone's Keith
Duffy on October 17th this year, has so far been doing exactly
what it is set to do: Bring the crowd in, and the crowd
are loving it!
This Christmas, Storm will be open every night from Dec
19th to Jan 1st with each evening guaranteeing hours of
endless fun, great music and a brilliant atmosphere.
The Storm legacy came to life last February when proprietor
Tony Ward, went to look at the premises once it was for
Even though I had been in and out of the club several times,
I didn't know how much room was wasted down at the back
with kitchens and offices."
And it was this space that Tony, with the help of his brilliant
yound Irish interior Designer Selena Brennan, would turn
into the imaginative and dazzling club it is today.
It was immediately obvious to Tony that his vacant premises
was just the right size to be transformed into a dancing
area with two substantial bars. Although Tony originally
approached veteran designer Frank Ennis, who had done a
brilliant job on Redz, he decided that Storm - a new and
exciting club - should have a new and exciting interior.
Something completely different from Redz - Enter Selina
The promising young designer drew up some sketches of what
she imagined this look to be.
Not long after, well, six months of hard work to be exact,
Drogheda's newest hot spot was ready to go.
Fitted out with a immaculate glass dance floor, bubble tubes,
plasma tables, a six foot monster with red glowing eyes,
five foot graphic equalisers behind the bars and a catchy
name coined by Tony's Wife, Cathy, the new club was ready
to show Drogheda exactly what a good night out was supposed
However the real beauty of Storm is not the impressive interior
or size but the fact that there is something there for everyone.
If you want a Dance, you can have a Dance, if you want a
drink, then there's plenty of room for that too! There's
a broad range of music that will suit everyone's tastes
and the friendly, professional and courteous bar staff will
serve you an one of an impressive range of drinks, as quickly
as you could ask for.
Storm do enforce a strict door policy and anybody getting
ready to enjoy a good night they would be advised to be
neatly dressed and runner free!
There is no doubt that Storm is the place to spend this
Christmas with a good crowd, good staff and a great night
promised, every night!
