The history of The Beacham dates back to the 1920s, when it was opened as a vaudeville and movie theater, but was closed down and replaced by the Tabu nightclub. However, The Beacham survives and flourishes to re-open in 2011 as a suave nightclub at the same location. Aiming to be an 'intimate' venue, the club shares a doorway with another very popular club, The Social. Together, the venues bring to the city a passel of entertainment, be it great bands, DJs, or interesting club nights. To keep a good image, however, the venue has imposed a strict dress code. So do see the website to plan a visit to The Beacham.
