Entertainment company The Luminar Group has invested in the creation of a brand new nightclub, opened in Ashford, Kent.
This is no ordinary nightclub though; the new venue, named Cameo, is a transformed warehouse. Work carried out on the building meant that it was stripped to its origins to give revellers a real feeling of its roots.
The Luminar Group, which has built and owns groups of similar nightclubs across the UK, has invested £1.25m into its latest venture after teaming up with hospitality specialist Design at Source to create thie nighttime joint, which consists of three floors.
The ground floor has been designed to be a sophisticated bar area and uses the warehouse’s original exposed brickwork. It combines this with industrial lighting and a mixture of parquet and concrete flooring, as well as back-illuminated glass panels that have been placed behind booth seating areas.
The dance area of the venue is located on the first floor, and is overlooked by a second-storey balcony. The DJ console takes centre stage on the dancefloor and is complemented by concert-style speaker stacks. As well as this, it is equipped with video and LED panels that extend across the whole room and link the dancefloor with the balcony.
Located on Station Road, Cameo is under the general management of Fred Shingler. Russell Margerrison, the chief financial officer of The Luminar Group, has said that this chain of nightclubs offers a stylish interior and combines it with a quality entertainment strategy and high standards of service.
