Probably the most well known club in Northern Ireland, Kellys Portrush, played host to the latest Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange event last weekend. More than 2,000 people witnessed the best of Argentinean nightlife come alive at the venue as part of the region’s first Nightlife Exchange experience.

The biggest nightclub in the land was transformed as part of the exchange with more than 200 metres of fabric creating a stunning sea of light blue and white, the colours of Argentina. DJ David De Valera headlined the music bill and performed alongside Kellys resident DJ Col Hamilton and Connor Phillips.

The night also featured delicious drinks including an Argentinean take on the signature Smirnoff Mule, street theatre, including tango dancers, stilt walkers, fire eaters, and Paka the infamous fire breathing horse.
