North west nightclub Suburbia is opening its second venue and planning a national rollout.

Tom and Sarha Thornton-Brookes have run the nightclub in Hale, Cheshire since 2013 and acquired it from Living Ventures last August.

The new site launches today in Ridgefield, Manchester, on the former site of Avici White.

Tom Thornton-Brookes told the Manchester Evening News: “Manchester has been crying out for a Suburbia. There’s lots of great bars but not too many places to finish your night.

“This is the place I’d bring my wife, I’d bring my friends… My mum’s going to be here on opening night and I’m sure she’ll be first up dancing.

“We want to open at least four of these, and I’ve got an idea for a couple of new bar concepts as well. I’m not going to limit myself and say I’ll only have this many; if I end up with 15 or 20, then happy days!”
