A club in Windsor that hit 'rock bottom' hopes to restore its reputation after a new management team took over the reins.
Chris Good, general manager at Vanilla Nightclub in Goswell Hill since last month, said he is aiming to transform its negative image and reputation among revellers.
The nightspot was the scene of a mass brawl involving 200 people in October 2010 that needed 53 police officers to control and described by some as the 'worst ever' in the town.
After the ugly scenes the club had its licence reviewed by Royal Borough in December 2010, which revealed there had been 56 police-related offences at the club in 14 months.
Chris, 40, said: "I am aware how bad the image is and the club had hit rock bottom just before I came.
"I am going to introduce a tougher door code so undesirables will not be let in and stop the trouble before it comes in."
Chris said he has already had meetings with police and council licensing team members about future promotion nights.
He said he will put an end to grime and garage nights that attract the 'wrong crowd'.
