A POPULAR Exmouth nightclub has confirmed it will be closing its doors - but only for a two month refurbishment which will include a restaurant.

Fahrenheit nightclub, on The Parade, has launched a public consultation on the internet through the social networking site Facebook, asking for ideas on how to transform the club.

The owner, who opened Fahrenheit three years ago, said: "What we want is the town to design the club.

"With the departure of the students and young people we need to cater more for families and older people - it will still be a club just with a different style."

The 446 members of the website have already suggested ideas ranging from a VIP area, expanding the dance floor, webcams connected to the internet and the most suggested idea was for more mixed music.

So far, Mr Justice has ideas to introduce a restaurant with a cocktail bar on the second floor, live music and comedy nights, and go upmarket to attract people from Exeter with a quality pub club.

The owner is hoping to begin refurbishment work at the beginning of next year with the club planned for reopening in March.

Owner John Justin confirmed rumours that its parent company was going into liquidation but said that the club would not be affected.

Ideas for the Fahrenheit new nightclub should be posted before Christmas on www.facebook.com on the page New Nightclub to Hit Exmouth.
