The Level Nite Club in downtown Kelowna is under new ownership.

The club on Leon Avenue closed at the end of February, with the promise of something bigger and better on the horizon.

“The End of an Era as a new one begins. Level Night Club as we know it is saying goodbye,” management posted on Facebook prior to the club’s closing.

Thursday, it was announced part of that new era includes new owners. Eddy and Tony Racano, owners of Sapphire Nightclub down the street from Level, have finalized the purchase of the club.

The club is undergoing what the owners say is a “substantial renovation to modernize the venue with a revised layout to contend with contemporary nightlife expectations.

“The space is currently undergoing substantial renovations,” the Racano brothers, who have been a part of the local music and entertainment scene for more than 20 years, said in a joint statement. “We expect to open early this summer.”

The club will also undergo a name change, which is in the process of being decided.

The Racano brothers says they bought the club because they noticed a “lack of suitable venues, and saw a great opportunity to expand and bring more shows to Kelowna.”

While the new club isn’t expected to fully open until late May, two shows booked for the middle of the month are going ahead.

Kelowna-based producer Downlink will perform May 10 as part of The Doom System 2019 Tour, while Tatianna, famous for her appearance on the hit show RuPaul’s Drag Race, is scheduled for May 11.
