The Night Owl
When: opening mid-July
Where: The Night Owl, 17-18 Lower Trinity Street, Digbeth, B9 4AG
Northern Soul isn’t just a music genre, it’s a way of life. The records, dancing, and clothes created a movement that is still going strong nearly 50 years since its inception.
The Night Owl will be the Midland’s first Northern Soul and Motown bar, opening in Digbeth in mid-July. The venue will have a sprung wooden dance-floor, a modern spin on the vintage interiors of yesteryear, and a camera above the DJ booth to show the label of the record that is playing.
The club plans to open seven nights a week: Thursday nights will be Club A-Go-Go featuring DJ Sean Chapman; every Friday will be a pure Northern Soul night; whereas Saturdays will see DJs playing a range of Northern Soul classics, Motown, Soul, Funk, Ska, 60s RnB, and more, all beneath a huge disco ball!
