The new Fibbers, formerly Tokyo, has had complete renovation work over the summer to become YUSU’s official Thursday club night. The decision was swiftly changed to Fibbers, previously decided Mansion, due to problems with capacity size for official club nights.
The renovation means a new Bier Keller bar area, bigger capacity, and bigger bands to play. Already street comedian Dapper Laughs is set to play on Halloween, along with a number of tribute bands and up-and-coming acts set to play at the live music venue.
However problems have already begun at the revamped venue with York St John students by means of broken air conditioning. With promises that all has been fixed and “the remote found”, York students have high hopes for the Thursday night club.
The new Fibbers also promotes a second lap-dancing club in York, which has no direct access from the music venue with a separate queue to separate the customers.
Fibbers is open for University of York students on official Thursday nights.
