It’s all change on Dublin’s Middle Abbey Street with the Spirit nightclub about to adopt a new moniker and, by the sound of things, a new direction too.

The Dublin venue will be known as Spirit 57 from November 1 with former Olympia Theatre boss Brian Whitehead taking over the reins at the Denis Desmond-owned venue. The club’s New York outpost has been closed for some time.

One of the first changes will see electrohouse club night Dirty Fridays ceding way to Brutus Gold’s Love Train, a UK club night which bills itself as “a fantasy recreation of the disco years”.
