The Ritz Penzance

Not originally a club. The Ritz Penzance started off life as a cinema but as more and more people turned to TV for entertainment the cinema closed. Various entertainments were experimented but the only real successful alternative to closure was bingo. Brought by Mecca and later sold in the 1980s to Top Rank the hall was in good use. Later in the late 80s the hall was brought by the management and run as a local bingo business. Eventually the business closed and the hall was empty. A local group formed a charity to save the Ritz and various live acts have stared there since. The hall is owned now by Merlin Leisure.

Without a doubt the shortest running nightclub in Penzance and quite possibly the UK. Opened amongst controversy, breached trademarks and closed within a few short years. The club gained a reputation for drugs and violence.

Club PZ1

Club PZ1 was a failed reinvention of the Barn Club. After the Barn Club closed the parent company Orion Leisure limited re branded the barn as Club PZ1. Well not exactly, because they originally thought it should be called Club Liquid but days before the opening it turned out that the name was trademarked and they had to change it to Club PZ1. The Club opened on 29th October 2011 and closed on 30th December.
