A new night club Base Lounge Club is set to open its doors in Maun, Botswana’s tourism hub.

The new club has already become the talk of the town even before opening because there has been no night club in the tourism town after the closure of Fresh Exclusive and Trekkers by the council for not complying with by-law regulations.


The brainchild behind Base Lounge Club, Dr Max Nhlatho confirmed that they have been awarded a licence to operate a night club.

Dr Max said everything is set with sound and lighting in good state and are now finalising the tiling and the painting of the club. He added that they will soon put the furniture and the stock.


He said this is a modern club designed for the working class. “We are not looking for people who are going to harass others. It is meant for people to have a relaxed time with their colleagues,” he said.

He promised tight security at the place which will also have a restaurant. The club is located in the heart of town as compared to other previous clubs which were in residential areas. He, however, admitted that it was a challenge for council gives them the license based on the perception that it’s not good for a club to open in the middle of the town.


In fact, it is the first time for a club to be operated in Maun CBD. “The council was sceptical to allocate them licence based on the location of the place but the physical planners were clear that the club should be in the heart of town,” he said.  

He also stated that from now on people should understand that club is a CBD thing in the reason that whatever there is any disturbance such as of traffic and other things will not affect residents in any way.


Dr Max said they were supposed to open three months back but the granting of the licence took long.  He promised better entertainment in Maun, adding that the club will also create jobs as it will hire more local youth.
