An Italian club established in 1957 in Melbourne’s North is being transformed into a 4000-person electronic venue.
Promoter and events company Novel are gearing up to open the doors of The Thornbury Social Club in September.
Melbourne dance music fans are in for a treat as organisers transform the old Italian club into a 4000-person “techno lovers’ playground”.
Novel were given the keys to the Italian Furlan Club earlier this year, and they’ve been hard at work transforming the space into an extravagant two-story expanse for punters to enjoy.
Located in Thornbury’s neighbourless industrial area, the club will hold a 5am license. Developers are currently tackling the challenge of converting a massive sporting space into a unique electronic sanctuary that patrons can explore.
The club boasts a ballroom, multiple function rooms, a 1300-square-metre sports arena, two squash courts, and a ten lane bocce court.
The ambitious project follows several successful stagings across Sydney and Melbourne, from raves in underground car parks to the Days Like This Festival earlier this year.
Novel will release details about how they plan to christen the Thornbury Club in the coming weeks.
