New Nightclub Set to Open in Historic Downtown Building

August 20, 2009 9:20 AM | Entertainment

Mystique NightclubWinnipeg’s newest nightclub is set to open in the fall in a historic piece of downtown real estate.

Mystique Nightclub will occupy the Imperial Bank building at 441 Main Street. The building has a reputation for housing some of the city’s finest clubs in the past, and the owners of Mystique are hoping that trend will continue.

With so many nightclubs in the city popping up all over the place, Mystique is planning to make a unique experience for patrons with four elements. The club will feature a ring of fire, waterfalls, CO2 cannons — which blast the crowd with a safe gas that produces freezing steam to cool off the room by 20 degrees almost instantly — and earthly decor.

The man behind making sure the grand opening on October 2 and 3 goes off without a hitch is Jamie Hall. Hall is known throughout the city for hosting and promoting some of the best late night parties club-goers have ever seen. Most recently, he was responsible for helping launch another club in the city’s south end.

“The whole point is to have fun and leave pretentious attitudes at the door,” Hall told ChrisD.ca. “Our dress code is non-existent with us just following a nightlife code; no sports gear including caps and no gang affiliation marks (colours, emblems, etc.) We encourage everyone to come in their own sense of style whether that style is ripped jeans, fashionette or a suit.”

The club hasn’t even kicked open its doors yet, but is already receiving booking requests for parties and VIP.

Perhaps launching in the fall will be a good strategy, as Winnipeggers will be looking for something to do when the colder weather comes around.
