Turns out the guys behind couture-themed club Moda have teamed up with the crew from John Barleycorn to transform Moda into swanky sports lounge Social Twenty-Five—which was exclusively reported here earlier this week.

They've swapped fashion for flatscreens, plus look for rocker-inspired and champagne-based cocktails, mini versions of our fave fare (burgers, pizzas, tacos), and a highly energetic atmosphere.

They're opening it to the public tonight at 8pm, so try to make an appearance.

Get ready for 'Rampfest!'
