    Default Luminar leisure in administration...

    Anyone on here in the uk will have for sure been to one of their clubs, be it an oceana, liquid, whatever. although its been on the cards for a long time... luminar leisure officially goes into administration tomorrow. Their clubs and bars might not be everyones choice, but its a bad thing when a brand this big goes under!

    this is really bad for the uk club scene and i have a lot of friends that work for the company, i hope that things get better with our economy sooner rather than later!

    Didn't someone on here (might have been fullenglishpint) just get a gig at one of their venues?

    I'll be a teeny bit sad to think of all the future students missing out on Oceana student nights...

    I worked at one of there clubs in Newcastle years ago which was a student weekday/hard dance on weekends and it was always in the top 4 luminar clubs every year making 4/5 million a year. They rebranded it too a Liquid aimed it more at students and its been flat on its arse for years til they brought in 60p drinks lol even then it was only busy on a Saturday

    Thats pretty big, loved the old Oceana Thursdays back home. I suppose with students (including me) buying drinks and getting sloshed at home before they get out, their entry fees, usually rather small, are not enough to keep this large firm afloat. Gone are the days of a long night of drinking and partying.

    This is HUGE news in my city. If this goes down then 2 of the biggest clubs go down.

    I would be ok cus to be honest they are my direct competitors. The 2 luminar clubs in my city are the ones that we lose custom to or they lose to us. Its a ding-dong battle all the time.

    People will lose jobs so its a bad situation.

    THe one in Newcastle was bought a few days ago so I can imagine the others with potential will be snapped up aswell or maybe there will be a massive buy out as like what happened with Ultimate Leisure

    I would be really happy if the Liquid in my town shuts down. All it does is encourage shit nights, playing shit music to people drinking shit drinks. Obviously I am sorry that people may lose jobs. However, in my opinion its places like this that kill decent underground venues.

    Roll on the Closure of Liquid.
