The Wick Comes To Life Over The Weekend With New Club Nights

The Wick Comes To Life Over The Weekend With New Club Nights

One of Derby’s oldest pub’s, The Wick, has been given a new lease of life by local entrepreneur Damian Pendleton.

The Wick Pub and Kitchen on Derby’s Wardwick not only serves handmade pizzas and burgers and pub tapas (the black pudding lollipops with chilli chutney are to die for!) but over the weekend The Wick plays host to some pretty special club nights, live music performances and northern soul nights. The Wick have even created their own home flavoured spirits giving the big boys a run for their money.

Damian has operated numerous successful independent stores across the East Midlands and this is his first step into the hospitality scene. To aid in this venture he appointed operations manager Adam Firth, a former general manager of Annie’s Burger Shack and West End bars.

The biggest nights are held here, including:

Ghost Bar

Ghost bar was birthed from the ashes of the former sun lounge residence. Focusing on a stadium atmosphere by collaborating with the best local and national talent available, the venue has gone from strength to strength. Ghost bar is Derby’s premier outdoor bar, combining mesmerising LED Tunnels with strong drink offers.


The Bunker is at the top of the midlands underground house scene. With an emphasis on assessable, yet dirty beats the bunker boys know how to throw a party. Which is why ghost bar play host to the Forbidden Forest after party with Bunker boys warming up for the talented Joe Quinn and GW Harrison.


The Garage scene is back, and it appears to evolved to a new crowd of followers. This safe rave scene is going from strength to strength combining new talented DJs along with legends such as DJ EJ headlining previous events.

Big on production and big on bass. This thumping night is the ideal place for those craving dirty dubs.
