Arts hub for Adelaides Heaven

first_imgWhere you would once go for “one night in Heaven”, the nightclub that housed so many Greek singers, Greek nights and NUGAS events will be turned into a Creative Hub in December. Heaven’s second iteration – at Pirie Street’s St Pauls complex – has been shut down once and for all, after the club itself stopped operating last year.The state government’s new incentive will see more than 200 artists, musicians and entrepreneurs expected to pack the former Heaven nightclub building on Flinders Street each day. The Planning Department has lodged plans for the old St Paul’s church building on the Pulteney St corner.The hub will offer a range of memberships options for individuals and groups, as well as sponsored fellowships and scholarships; it will open 24/7 but amplified music will stop after 11pm; the government expects 200 members to use the hub each day, and more in the lead-up to major arts festivals; the hub will span over two levels and make use of the former nightclub’s stages and dressing rooms, and; there will be no structural changes to the local heritage-listed building but $150,000 will be spent on basic improvements such painting, wiring and plumbing.
