FacilitiesEdit

Voodoo was designed by its former owners Jason and Sharon Black and has a capacity of 1500.[1] The club was constructed by Deluxe from Portadown, Northern Ireland. The club has three VIP rooms. The Red Room is the smallest of the three rooms and it is located on the ground floor beside the main bar. China White is located on the second floor. It overlooks the main room and can hold up the 150 people. The Glass Room is also located on the second floor and has a private bathroom and bar. It can hold up to 30 people.

Club Voodoo was nominated for Best Nightclub at the Licensing World Awards 2008.[2]

The building houses a bar - Bar Voodoo, complete with multiple plasma screens and leather sofas. The Live Lounge features Ireland's best bands and broadcasts all major sporting events. Sound systems are installed throughout the lounge giving equal volume to all areas. The lounge hosts live bands and DJ's and alternative theme nights also.[3]

Club Voodoo opened a second club in Gweedore in July 2008.[4] Despite attracting many large names to the venue it struggled and eventually closed with increased competition described as the main factor in its decision in August 2009. [5] It was outside this nightclub that GAA All Star Kevin Cassidy's brother notoriously bit a man's ear off. Kevin Cassidy was later found guilty of affray and sentenced to community service.[6][7][8]
