The old Juke Box will reopen as Club twenty3 on Thursday following a renovation that has remodeled nearly every aspect of the Manheim Township nightclub.
Closed since March 2020, renovations to the approximately 5,000 square foot dance club began last April with a new design that optimizes crowd flow.
Gone are the old dance floors and the old red and white checkered floor. The bar areas have been modernized and new lounge areas have been created around the central dance floor, while the sound system and an outdoor patio have also been redone.
The updated menu features wings, fries, tacos and empanadas.
Eric Perrone, co-owner of the 1703 New Holland Pike nightclub, said he would continue to try to attract a diverse crowd, with themed nights such as country and Latin nights, while providing entertainment in live before 10 p.m., DJs, who will play music from 10 p.m. to closing.
Perrone said the long-planned renovation coincided with its closure due to state restrictions meant to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Thursday’s opening comes just as Governor Tom Wolf lifts capacity limits on nightclubs, restaurants and other businesses.
Perrone joined the club’s ownership group in 2018, several years after it was sold by longtime owner John Kneisley. Perrone declined to disclose the cost of the renovations
The Jukebox was once owned by William Trimble, who also owned Eden Vittles and Grog, a restaurant that predated it. Before that, the spot was The Eden Hotel.
