A new retro disco club named Gloria's is preparing to open on Back Berry Street.

Gloria's will move into the premises which was previously the late-night cocktail and rock and roll bar MOJO. The business moved to Hanover Street in August 2023 but closed its doors in March 2024.

The club will feature "big disco tunes" every weekend, late-night DJs, events and a retro atmosphere to "transport you back to the bygone era of pure bliss."

Little is currently known about the club but applications are open for managers, bar and floor staff. Gloria's is still undergoing renovations but the opening date has been teased for summer.

Back Berry Street was a popular destination for clubbers thanks to Mojo which opened in 2008. The move to Hanover Street saw MOJO expand massively but the new venture only survived for seven months.

A statement shared on MOJO's Instagram said: "It is with a leaden heart that we announce the closure of MOJO Liverpool after fifteen mostly wonderful years. No one needs to be reminded of the challenges that face us all in the current climate but suffice it to say we have been forced to make a decision we hoped never to have to.

We have had many wondrous nights with some of the most extraordinarily warm and welcoming people you could ever wish to meet. Our teams over the years and not least those who leave us today have never failed to be a delight. We will miss them and Liverpool dearly."
