Nightclub set for comeback.
AN OLD city centre nightclub which reopened - then closed a year ago - is again set to take on a new lease of life.
The Ko Poda club (above) - formerly the Pink Parrot - has been taken over by businessman Petr Glob. He expects to sign a contract with the former owners today.
Mr Glob, aged 34, who lives in Coventry, is one of the directors of a new company planning to reopen the night-club in the summer and change its name yet again.
It will be known as the Demand night-club.
Mr Glob said: "We have very positive plans for the venue and want to make it one of the leading night-time venues in the city."
He said he had already lined up a host of top-name DJs and performers and would be releasing details nearer the opening date, planned for a few weeks' time.
He added: "The club recently underwent a major refurbishment but we need to carry out some minor works before launching."
In 2003, brother and sister Michael and Michelle O'Brien spent thousands on a complete refurbishment and new image for the club in Tower Street.
They added air-conditioning, a "chill" area separated from Ko Poda's two dance floors and 27 security cameras.
But with the Skydome nearby, the new venture never really recaptured the crowds drawn to the old Pink Parrot.
