AN Isle of Wight nightclub looks set to re-open under new owners.

Matthew Diffey, of Widget Productions, successfully applied to the Isle of Wight Council’s licensing sub-committee for a premises licence for the Newport town centre nightspot, previously known as 'The Studio’ and more recently, 'The Loft’.

The application for 'Dr Beatwigs’ at 9 Bowling Green Lane was granted on Monday (2), with conditions requested by police and environmental health.

The nightclub and live music venue, close to Newport Bus Station, was granted opening hours of between 9am and 2am Monday to Sunday, with no re-admittance after 1am.

Mr Diffey told the County Press it would be a couple of months before the club opened.
