Years of memories of messy nights, broken heels and the BEST gal chats in the toilets – is coming to a close.

The Wright Venue is shutting its doors after 10 years and we can't deal.

The North Dublin club will officially wave goodbye to its customers at the end of January.

So if you want one more bop in the venue – assemble the gals asap.

It's not all bad news though, as the current staff will be offered positions within the company.

In a statement, it was revealed that the spot will be re-opened as 'Jam Park' in the next coming months.

The company are looking to take a different direction with the site, saying their "focus now is the food business."

Michael Wright thanked his staff for all their dedication that turned the Wright Venue into the iconic nightclub it is today.

"We thrived thanks to the talented and passionate team that helped create the unique Wright Venue atmosphere and reputation and by offering quality entertainment and major stars," he stated.

We are so sad to see this one go.


Oh Happy Hardcore, the ony music genre it was cool to listen to back in the 2007-2009 era.

The genre itself was dominated by some key players, namely DJ Rankin, DJ Cammy and Special D – patron saints of sounds your parents dubbed 'chipmunk music' thanks to their fondness for high-pitched, fast paced vocals. 

It was a simpler time, when music tastes were dictated by whatever songs your friends could Bluetooth (or God forbid, Infared) from Motorola flip phone to Sony Erikson brick in the school yard. 

These were the days when holing up in your room in your Foroige hoodie Limewiring songs onto your phone and using 'txt spk' on MSN was a national hobby.

Oh, and don't forget to add Fly on the Wings of Love as your Bebo flash box, lest anyone forget what a full time mad ba***rd you were.

Well dust off your Cantos and whip out the glow sticks, because The Wright Venue is resurrecting some Happy Hardcore legends. 

 If you are a fan of DJ Cammy, DJ Rankin, DJ Badboy and DJ Zitkus, you may want to head to The Wright Venue in Swords on December 1. 

The venue is playing host to some of the 00s most iconic DJs (and to be honest, we kind of had been wondering whatever happened to them).

Tickets currently range from €8.00-12.00, so get in there quick, as this epic nostalgia fest is sure to sell out fast. 

Until them, here's a little anthem to remind you of your youth (DJ Rankin in the mix mother f*****):
