Queensbridge, formerly the QBH, recently had a psychic visit and banish evil spirits from the site. Venue manager Dan Vieny said that the spiritual adviser found five evil spirits during two consultation sessions. The blessing of the Queensbridge happened last Friday.
The psychic was hired by the ALH Group, owner of the Queensbridge, after the advice of the venue manager Viney and the nightclub consultant Glen Coburn.
“It’s due, to a clear determination, to not leave any stone unturned in the pursuit of offering and delivering a safe, happy and convivial environment,” said BruceMathieson of ALH. “And, hopefully, it works.”
“Our spiritual adviser is doing all she can to clear them. But spirituality is only one aspect of what we are doing to cleanse the environment” said Coburn.
Banishing the evil spirits is only one part of the plan for the troubled Queensbridge. There is also an on-going renovation and rebranding plan that is expected to cost $1 million. In July, it will be renamed Embassy, targeting A-listers and celebrities as its main market.
The makeover follows violent incidents that have marred the venue. In March, a brawl outside the club injured 13 people, including the venue manager. Last year, a 24-year old died outside the club, bashed to death by two men. In 2007, a 22-year old was king-hit outside the venue. Mathieson said the venue plans to work with the police and politicians to combat violence. “The past incidents are a reality we have to bear,” he said.
In addition to the spirit sweep, other planned changes to the club include improved security and the addition of a smoking deck.
“Hopefully, a refreshing of all things concerned will see us steer clear of the historical issues.
