Luminar develops karaoke offering with Lucky Voice


Luminar Lucky VoiceThe Luminar Group is building on the karaoke offering in its nightclubs through a new agreement with karaoke specialist Lucky Voice.

It has installed the Lucky Voice Enterprise system in a VIP room at its new venue Pryzm in Kingston upon Thames in south London, which has been opened after a £1million investment.

While Luminar already operates karaoke rooms with Lucky Voice in some of its 55 clubs, it is the first time that the company has installed Lucky Voice Enterprise as an additional attraction for one of its existing VIP rooms.

The custom-built touch-screen karaoke software means that the space can be turned into a private karaoke booth, which Luminar is offering for hire by the hour. It is branded as “powered by Lucky Voice”.

Luminar chief executive Peter Marks said: “As we create a new, high-quality clubbing experience under the Pryzm banner, we want our customers to experience the very best in cutting-edge design, technology and entertainment.

“Lucky Voice is widely recognised in the industry as the original and best karaoke solution for entertainment providers and we are delighted to introduce the concept of private booth karaoke to our customers in Kingston.”

Nick Thistleton, managing director of Lucky Voice, added: “Demand for our ‘powered by’ karaoke platform continues to flourish across all sectors of the entertainment industry and now extends to a wide range of leisure businesses including bars, clubs, restaurants, bowling alleys and entertainment parks both in the UK and overseas.

“Our clients report that Lucky Voice Enterprise is proven to be both popular with customers and a lucrative means of generating engagement and interest. We are extremely excited to partner with The Luminar Group as they look to appeal to a wider audience with their new Pryzm nightclub concept.”

Set up by Lastminute.com’s co-founder Martha Lane Fox and Nick Thistleton, Lucky Voice started with a bar with premium karaoke rooms in Soho, London, and has expanded to three owner-operated venues and five franchised operations across the UK.

Under the ‘powered by Lucky Voice’ brand, venue operators can license the Lucky Voice technology for their own business uses, whether with Lucky Voice Enterprise or Lucky Voice Pro.

Pryzm was launched in Kingston on November 15 after a complete refit of the former Oceana – the second Oceana to be revamped into Luminar’s new club concept Pryzm.

The upgraded club features three distinctly styled music rooms, a cocktail bar and a VIP lounge as well as the very latest in sound and lighting systems.

The club’s general manager Dan Corry said: “Customer feedback was really positive, especially on our luxury booths with table service, plus the new Curve bar and over-21s dance room and the ladies-only pamper room were all big hits.

“We will continue to build on the entertainment over the coming weeks and months.”
