Luminar rolls out revamp of Oceana clubs to Pryzm

PRYZM KingstonWork is under way to transform The Luminar Group’s Oceana nightclub in Kingston-upon-Thames in south London into the company’s new Pryzm concept.

The venue is undergoing a £1million investment to completely revamp it for a relaunch in November that will create 40 new jobs.

It follows the debut of Pryzm at the former Oceana in Bristol which was relaunched last month after a £1million investment. More Oceana sites are also set to be converted to Pryzm.

Housed in a listed building, the Kingston nightclub is being updated into a contemporary destination while preserving the period features.

To reduce waiting times, the reception area will be completely re-designed with a new entry system, increasing the access points from two to three while retaining the club’s stringent security checks.

Safety is paramount after concerns about crime around the former Oceana venue led in June to Luminar agreeing a set of new licence conditions with police and the local council.

The downstairs dance room will be for over-21s and the main room will feature the very latest lighting and sound effects, a new dancefloor and a DJ mixing desk positioned in the heart of the room.

The third room, the Disco Room, will bring a “sparkle” with VIP seating and table service throughout.

Oceana manager Dan Corry said: “Not only will each of our rooms be revamped with stunning décor but they will also have new names to match their individual characteristics from glamorous and elegant to contemporary and high-tech styling.

“We will also be installing the very latest sound and lighting systems with world-class DJs and PAs appearing on a regular basis.

“As part of our new service style, Pryzm will offer pre-bookable booths and table service throughout. We are all really excited about the plans and can’t wait to reveal the new Pryzm to our customers.”

Already employing 60 people, the investment will also create up to 40 more jobs with recruitment days to be announced. These new roles will help to deliver the high service standards of the new club.

The club will remain open while the transformation takes place apart from a short closure before re-opening this November.

Luminar is the UK’s largest nightclub operator with 55 clubs across the UK, attracting more than 11million visitors every year.
