Entrepreneur Louella Adamson is determined to diversify the city’s nightlife to keep people on the High Street.
“This is a place you can come to any time of the evening and there will be something going on,” said Louella, owner of @home Salisbury.
On Wednesday evening, Valley News paid a visit to the place on Bridge Street that “has something for everyone” to watch aerialist Clare McCall perform on the trapeze.
“I was last here at the Christmas party which was a really fun event,” Clare said.
@home promise a total variation of live entertainment Monday to Saturday, including drag queens, stand-up comedy, salsa classes and charity pub-quizzes.
The fully licensed bar is downstairs from the function room where the events take place.
In addition to be the only bar in Salisbury that serves Absinthe, guests can enjoy a game of air hockey or reveal hidden talents on the popular karaoke nights.
“We have members from all different ages and we also host under 18s events on Sundays,” Louella said.
According to her, Salisbury’s young adults lack options when deciding where to go on a night out.
“We have lost a lot of bars over the last four to five years,” she said.
“[It] has been quite a shame for people who have just turned 18 and wants somewhere to drink.
“Because of that we’ve seen lots of people turning to Southampton and Bournemouth for their nights out.”
With her addition to the city’s range of bars she has seen an influx of people enjoying the High Street and hopes to continue the trend to accommodate future residents.
“We’ve got lots of new army camps opening and housing estates, so we need to make sure there is place to facilitate them,” she said.
