ENTREPRENEUR AND GENERAL bon viveur Colin Barr is getting geared up to take his style bar and club interests, including the Apartment and Lounge, several steps further this summer. At the end of May, he opened his new club let on the site of the former Volcano Club in Glasgow's West End, featuring nights from Ground Control, Tonka and Bobby Bluebell. He has secured the premises until September, after which he hopes to transfer the license to a new West End club. Barr has also just completed negotiations with Eagle Taverns to take over Acanthus in central Edinburgh,

and opening up the basement as a club venue towards the end of the summer.
