The Area 51 crew were on hand to wow onlookers over a two-night inauguration of what is already being hailed as one of north England's most important new party venues.
Globots, chimps, dancers, a snake girl plus the brand new Quetzalcoatl creation from Area 51 rocked the event at the Clifford Street club which has re-opened following a £750,000 refurb to replace former students favourite hang-out Gallery.
The Quetzalcoatl character, created by Area 51's Adam Ford, is an impressive addition to the Area 51 arsenal of acts and is based on the ancient Mexican feathered serpent god who holds a special place in Aztec culture.
Kuda is a state-of-art sophisticated clubbing experience in the heart of Yorkshire boasting a sensational sound system, LED technology, excellent lighting and an "amphitheatre atmosphere." On the first of the two-night launch event - for VIP and media guests - the Area 51 team kicked off the entertainment inside the club's Tiki themed bar with a snake dancer along with chimps and girl dancers dressedin exotic feathered costumes plus the new Quetzalcoatl character. This was followed by an impressive display by globots inclduing the use of CO2 and pyrotechnics.
The second night, the public launch, saw more performances by the Area 51 team as well as the company's VeryDisco Channel camera crew filming proceedings.
