The venue, which was formerly the Pheonix Bar, has the capacity to host 250 clubbers and has an all-white interior to imitate Spain’s popular party destination in the Costa Del Sol.

General manager Jordan Leeson said Monica’s will be at the forefront of the live entertainment scene: “The theme is music, cocktails and Marbella.
