The owners of a city centre nightspot have announced the sudden closure of their once-popular club.

Liquid, on Ward Road, will close for the final time on March 28.

Its partner Over-30s club Envy will also shut on the same night.

The club, which is run by Milton Keynes based company Deltic, has operated locally for almost two decades.

They blamed Dundee’s “continuing” night-time economy decline for their decision to close.

Deltic’s chief executive, Peter Marks, said: “After almost 20 years at the heart of Dundee’s late night scene, firstly with the Mardi Gras and for the last 10 years Liquid & Envy, we have taken the difficult decision to close on Wednesday March 28.

“Our lease is coming to an end soon and we had to decide whether we should renew it and invest significant money in the club or walk away.

“Regrettably, we have decided on the latter, as we feel the night time economy in the city is continuing to decline where other city centres are improving.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful team, who made the club such a great place to enjoy a night out, and the hundreds of thousands of customers who crossed our threshold over the years to experience fun times with friends.

“Our main priority at the moment is to look after our team and we are doing all we can to offer support and find alternative employment.”
