Statement from a Spokesperson on behalf of The Circle Club

Circle Club closes after more than 10 years

Date: Tuesday 17th Dec 2013

Established more than 10 years ago, The Circle Club reigned supreme as Manchester's premier, private members club, offering a sumptuous meeting and entertainment space for creative, media and professional people. During the last 10 years we have been fortunate enough to host many high profile visitors. Our guest list reads like a celebrity roll call, including Cheryl Cole, Will I Am, Usain Bolt, Katie Price, Bob Geldof, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan, David Hay, Ne-Yo and David Hasselhoff, to name but a few. The Circle Club always set out to provide a safe, fun and friendly environment for our team, members and guests, to enjoy. Safety has always been our number one priority. To this end, we worked closely with Greater Manchester Police Licensing team to continually improve our operating policy in order to ensure we met our licensing obligations and kept our visitors and the general public safe from harm. We have enjoyed some fantastic nights at the club and built a reputation for hosting the wildest party in town for the most beautiful people. Despite our best endeavours, we have become an unfortunate victim of circumstance. The licence conditions, imposed after a fight between a group of mindless individuals earlier in the year has made it impossible for us to continue to operate a premium club. Regrettably, we are left with no option but to close the Circle Club with effect from Tuesday 17th December 2013

We would like to thank our guests and our loyal team, past and present, for making The Circle Club so special for so long.

We wish you all the very best for Christmas and the New Year!
