Lola Lo Oxford closed its doors for the final time on Friday night and is to reopen on April 13 under the new name Fever, Cherwell can exclusively reveal.

Eclectic Bars, who own the Lola Lo brand, have sold the site to Fever, who run retro-themed clubs with light-up dance floors in Lincoln and Cheltenham.

The venue was popular on Tuesday nights, with organisers Encore Events hosting ‘Rumble Tuesday’. Encore told Cherwell that they will continue working with the newly-opened Fever, and submitted a poem encouraging students to try the new bar.

“Lola Lo’s was lots of fun,” it reads, “on Tuesdays we drank lots of rum”.

“Fever’s here, it’s a ten out of ten”.

One student said: “I saw them moving pretend trees out last Friday and I wondered if something was going on”.

Lola Lo Oxford was once voted the third-worst club in the country in a poll conducted by The Tab. 

Eclectic Bars have been contacted for comment. 

For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
