CRUZ CONTINUES TO GO FROM STRENGTH-TO-STRENGTH IN THEIR RELOCATED PREMISES AT 77 VICTORIA STREET
Finally, after the sort of endless delays that everybody in Christchurch has experienced for themselves during these “post-quake” years, Cruz has expanded into the larger 1st-floor space above, and there is now a proper nightclub again.
CRUZ is open Wednesday to Sunday each week from 8pm till 4:30am, with a VJ playing chart and dance favourites from the 70’s thru to the very latest releases, Thursday to Saturday. There’s a $5 cover-charge after 10pm at the weekend, which increases after midnight
18 months in the making, the new dance-club is open Friday and Saturday night upstairs and is decorated with a dazzling 80’s theme, combining classic disco lighting from 30 years ago with the very latest lighting effects from 2013. The sound system is everything that you have come to expect from Tony and Bruce over the years, too. Fitted out from scratch, this space is nothing short of stunning. We have a high standard of dress-code at weekends; please don’t be disappointed by making us turn you away. We value your custom, but after 3 years of working in the middle of the dirty dusty bomb-site that is the Christchurch CBD, we think it is now time for us all to dress-to-impress at weekends! There’s even the best little balcony space in the entire city, overlooking bustling Victoria Street, where we can show the world that gay people still know how to dress, and how to party with style
If you can’t find us on the corner of Peterborough & Victoria Streets (opposite the Casino) then just look for the rainbow flags that are always flying in the breeze. It’s a very prominent location, and as always we make no attempt to hide ourselves away, and nor should we!
THANKS TO YOU ALL FOR THE SUPPORT THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THESE LAST 3 YEARS SINCE THE FIRST OF THE CANTERBURY EARTHQUAKES – AFTER MORE THAN 30 YEARS OPERATING GAY CLUBS IN CHRISTCHURCH, TONY AND BRUCE ARE STILL GOING STRONG AND CONTINUE TO PROVIDE THE MOST FAMILIAR AND SAFEST PLACE FOR THE CITY’S GAY COMMUNITY AND FOR VISITORS TO OUR DAMAGED CITY!
