PLANS have been unveiled to boost a city's night life through a £1m investment .

Vimac Leisure has announced it will spend the money on its Durham City venues,Caf Rock and DH-1.

The £500,000 work on DH-1 will begin in early summer.

The North Road nightclub will be remodelled to include the latest lighting, dance floors and furnishings, bringing it in line with some of the region's best.

As part of the refurbishment, the neighbouring Caf Rock will change its name.

Vimac Leisure boss Paul Mackings said: "Durham people deserve to have a real club experience on their doorstep, rather than having to travel to Newcastle or Sunderland."
