A NEW bar and nightclub could open in the basement of the Plaza building in Trafalgar Road by next month.
Woolwich-based Thomas Rahmani has signed a seven year lease on the premises in what was originally Greenwich's Granada theatre.
Refurbishment is already under way and the TR Bar & Club is expected to open in mid December.
Mr Rahmani told Greenwich.co.uk that he plans to "host club nights during the week and weekends." He also plans jazz and soul nights, open mic nights as well as discos that would "attract local residents in the area for a good night."
The building opened in 1937 as a cinema, built for "Mr and Mrs Greenwich." Since then, it has been a bingo hall and the Stars nightclub before being redeveloped to include residential and commercial units.
