Club Zidis now Liqwid

General Manager Keatin Shelton says the new Club Liqwid at 127 S. Main St., Salisbury, has two amazing disc jockeys, good bartenders and a friendly, outgoing staff.
“We kind of want to provide a fun environment for everyone, so they don’t have to drive all the way to Charlotte and back again,” Shelton says of the nightspot, which used to be Club Zidis.
“We’re wanting to bring back the nightlife to Salisbury.”
The club has changed ownership and debuted as Club Liqwid May 15. Shelton, who worked five years at Club Zidis, says the new owners want to remain in the background.
They bought the business from Wesley Stokes and Tim Schenk.
The original Club Zidis, which was owned by Louis Mourouzidis and Alisa Porter, opened in August 2002.
For now, Club Liqwid is open from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. But Shelton says he’s thinking about adding a “Live at Five” and open mike sessions for local acts, karaoke, teen nights and college nights.
The teen nights would offer a safe, alcohol-free place for dancing and music and have a juice and soda bar, Shelton says.
Meanwhile, the club also will be available for wedding parties and receptions, office and Christmas parties and birthday gatherings, Shelton says.
While Zidis may have focused on a young crowd, Club Liqwid will aim to include every age group and have a wider variety of music, Shelton says.
“It’s kind of a little bit of everything,” he adds. “We want to appeal to everyone.”
The membership club features music, projection screens, dancing and drinking out front.
“Our DJ can cater to any crowd,” Shelton says.
A back lounge area includes or will have video games, pool tables and a full bar. “You could be in that room and never have to leave,” Shelton says.
An East Rowan High graduate, Shelton says he hopes the club’s customers will see it as a place to have fun after a long work week and find it “so awesome it gets them through the next week.”For more information, contact the club at 704-633-3306, or by e-mail at clubliqwid@live.com. The club also has Facebook and MySpace pages.
