Memory Lane renamed

Columbus hot spot Memory Lane has become Aqua Nightclub.

Former TSYS employee Steve Bevilacqua recently took over ownership of the club, located at 1812 Midtown Drive.

He said he hopes to re-brand the venue to cater to partiers in their late 20s and early 30s.

"I want it to be an alternative to the downtown scene," Bevilacqua said.

Aqua Nightclub will have its pre-launch party Friday, April 18. Nashville-based femle band Mustang Sally will perform beginning at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10.

The venue will also host an Aqua Poker League Thursdays beginning April 3. Every Thursday in the month of April, each game winner will receive a trip to Las Vegas - airfare for one, lodging for two. Restrictions apply, and participation in the league is limited to 168 players.

Bevilacqua also plans to host a "Guitar Hero" contest on Wednesdays.
