A former night club in Chilliwack is reopening its doors with a new look and a new name. Industry Night Club has reopened its doors as Social Night Club, under new management and tons of renovations.

New owner Cody Christopher was born and raised in Chilliwack, and at only 27 years old, he hopes to have “a good long run” with the new club located at 45680 Hocking Ave.

Social softly opened its doors on Friday, May 13 to spread the word about the new club, and although the grand opening isn’t set until sometime in June, Christopher has big plans.

“It’s gonna be pretty sick but I don’t wanna let the bunny out of the hat just yet,” he says.

Christopher’s magic hat must contain one big bunny, because tonight (May 27) Social will host a concert featuring Detroit rap artists Trick Trick and D12, with tickets at only $10 a pop.

D12 came through Chilliwack last year on a tour with Xzibit.

“It was pretty cool, we’re looking forward to coming back,” says D12 member Bizarre.

The special off-tour concert at Social will be the first show in Canada since the start of the North American Dirty Nation Tour in April.

“A lot of energy, a lot of fun, coming to have a good time. We’re definitely going to party,” says Bizarre about the tour.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or at Christopher’s clothing store, Fuel Clothing, located in the Chilliwack Mall.

Christopher has done a total revamp of the old club and has put in “a whole helluva lot” more modern lighting, club lighting, and slate countertops. The VIP area is completely redone, another dance floor has been added while refinishing the old one, tons of brand-new stereo equipment, new bathrooms and 11 plasma TV screens, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg as far as the renovations go.

Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the show will start at 9 p.m. Christopher says he is expecting tickets to sell out.

And once again that magic hat has another surprise, as a variety of special surprise performances will happen after the show.

“It’s going to be lots of fun,” he says.
