Club 051 re-opens as multi-purpose venue

The team behind the newly re-launched Eric’s on Mathew Street have announced that they are to re-open the doors of another of the city’s famous music venues. The 1,500 capacity 1 Mount Pleasant, former home of the infamous Club 0 Five One, will launch tonight (Fri 16 Dec) with owner John Lynch promising a varied programme of events. 

Lynch and his team, music director Ethan Allen, promoter Lee Butler and commercial manager Carl Burleigh have promised the venue will have a wide appeal. Mr Lynch said: “It’s going to be a multi-purpose use venue which will appeal to all different types of people. We’ll host sporting events, cabaret, live music and touring bands. Size wise we fit snugly between the O2 Academy and the Mountford Hall. Liverpool needs another independent performance space.”

The venue launches on Friday 16 December with Now That’s What I Call a Works Night Out in conjunction with Radio City 96.7’s Cash For Kids charity. Featuring a host of DJ’s as well as live music from Xander & The Peace Pirates and Ultrabeat. Saturday 17th sees BBC Radio Merseyside’s Billy Butler host an evening with the American Drifters.

Mr Lynch added: “We are looking forward to 2012 and hope it will be a great year for live music in Liverpool.”

Eric’s which was re-launched in September with a special gig by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark has seen diverse acts including Trombone Shorty, Terrorvision, Jim Lauderdale and The Christians play the famous cellar.
