Plans have been revealed to turn a former Indian restaurant into a nightclub.

The Taj Mahal in Stevenage High Street closed in June. Developers have now submitted an application to Stevenage Borough Council (SBC) asking for change of use permission in the hope it can be transformed into a bar and nightclub.

The club would form part of current bar Venue – which would be rebranded under the plans.

The bar’s opening times could be 11am-2.30am from Monday to Saturday and 11am until midnight on Sundays and bank holidays.

The application states that 12 full-time members of staff would be taken on if approved.

A spokesman for the Sui Generis chain said: “We believe a new bar and nightclub would be much appreciated by the people of Stevenage and add something new and refreshing to the town’s nightlife.

“We look forward to working with the council and residents as we take this application forward.”
