Supreme Team Limited, the promoters of the popular Sandz party series, has acquired popular nightclub Fiction and will be spearheading operations when the popular hotspot reopens.

In a statement sent to The Gleaner, the new owners of the space in Marketplace said that they have always wanted to acquire their own space to facilitate expansion on the entertainment scene and are happy they have found that space at Fiction.

They plan to develop the nightclub and reopen it as a multipurpose lounge. The location is now closed, and the next few weeks will be used to prepare it for the unveiling of The Living Room. The nightclub will be transformed into a restaurant floor plan with adequate seating arrangements for both small and large groups. The Living Room will be suitable for launches, birthdays and other events.

According to events of Fiction Nightclub David Annakie, he is very pleased to be handing over the management of the space to Supreme Team. He believes the young men are driven visionaries who have the passion to take the club and lounge area to the next level.

Andrew Ellis, director of Supreme Team Limited, explained that with the space being repurposed as a lounge, he and his team will be making some major changes. "When the opportunity presented itself, we really could not hesitate. This will allow us to maintain constant interaction with our customers. Our first order of business is to enhance the existing lounge and introduce our customers to the exciting cocktails, wine selection and delicious menu we have in store," he said. "Being that Mr Annakie already did a phenomenal job with the decor of the venue, there will be a heavy focus on the customer experience, service from all levels, along with a new business model for the location."

Over the past few years, Supreme Team Limited has successfully staged Sandz and other affiliated events, including Triple Thursdays, The Estate, Ova Suh, Backyaad BBQ, and Funch. The team believes they have developed an understanding of what the customers want in an entertainment space, and they believe that putting these elements into a fixed space will make The Living Room the ultimate spot. "Overall, the enhanced decor and the energy that will be put into the space alone will create a lot of excitement, and we are proud of the product that we will be putting forward and cannot wait to share it," said Oniel Forbes, director of Supreme Team.
