The high-end club located in the former theater on West Rosemary Street, will hold its grand opening Saturday from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., bringing the first club of its kind to the area.
Angela Connor, front house manager for the club, said the owner named the club "NV," or envy, after one of the seven deadly sins in the movie "Seven."
The club will be open from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Wednesday through Friday from at a cover charge of $6. On Saturday, the hours will be from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. at a cover of $8.
"Saturday will be the big night because it is the more traditional party night," Connor said.
She said the club was modeled after the New York club scene and hopes to attract patrons from the Research Triangle Park area.
"Of course it is for the college age students, but because of the quality, we want to draw in the 30 to 35 crowd," she said.
Connor said the owner, Brent Lee, owned an Internet company in Chapel Hill but traveled to New York frequently. He enjoyed the club scene there and wanted to bring a part of it back to Chapel Hill, she said.
Connor said the club will maintain a formal atmosphere by enforcing a dress code in which jeans and a T-shirt will be considered too casual.
"It's going to be more of a production rather than just people coming to drink," Connor said.
