Tokyo Lincoln club to close for refurb

The Tokyo Lincoln night club on Silver Street will close over the summer for a quarter-million pound refurb to parts of the Constitutional Club.

The work carried out includes turning the ground floor into an American-style pool hall and basement structural reorganisation works.

Tokyo Industries invested £1.5 million last year to turn the building into a 900-capacity night club after 15 years as a derelict property.

The building will close in early June after the Jubilee weekend and is set to reopen in September.

A number of casual staff will be let go during this period and they will be able to return to their positions in the autumn.

The club will also be looking for additional team members for the reopening.

Tokyo Industries, which runs 24 venues across the country, told The Lincolnite this is phase two of three for works on the listed building.

Spokesperson Joanna Simpson said: “Tokyo Lincoln will be closing, as planned, during the summer slow-down to allow for phase two of continuing development and building works.

“During this time the underpinning of the rear gable wall will be completed along with the advancement of the ground floor into an American style pool hall and basement structural reorganisation works.

“A series of closing and opening parties has been organised to celebrate the second of three planned phases of works at Tokyo Lincoln, which will see the grade II listed former derelict building complete.”
