Stonegate Pub Company is investing in a new nightclub and bar in Croydon – bucking a trend in the town centre that has seen a spate of closures.
It is set to launch Luna in High Street on January 29 in the former site of its late-night venue Reflex, with the launch night featuring entertainers and Kiss FM resident duo The Dixon Brothers as special-guest DJs.
With the planned opening of Westfield retail and leisure complex, it aims to be part of the regeneration of the town centre which saw the closure this month of Novus Leisure’s Tiger Tiger after 14 years. Other recent closures include Black Sheep Bar and Stonegate’s own Yates’s.
Luna will feature a new drinks menu featuring premium cocktails, beers, champagnes and spirits including luxury vodkas from all over the world. Pictured above as a computer-generated image, it will have three VIP areas, with hostesses armed with iPads providing table service.
It has a new sound and lighting system and will feature a wide selection of DJs throughout the week, some of whom have played for some of the biggest and most glamorous parties across the globe.
Luna will be open six days a week from 5pm until 2am on weeknights and until 3am on Friday and Saturday. Happy hour will offer 50% off all drinks until 9pm.
Alan Armstrong, head of marketing for Luna, said: “We truly believe that Luna will be the start of the revival of Croydon’s late-night economy and we hope our significant investment into the venue demonstrates our commitment to the local area, and also to our loyal customer base.
“Not only will Luna be a fantastic late night venue but also a luxury bar that’s ideal for a relaxing drink or two with friends – offering the best of both worlds.
“With many exciting events lined up throughout the year, as well as enticing drink offers to keep people coming back – we really look forward to opening our doors to the public at the end of the month.”
