AMBITIOUS plans to transform one of Bournemouth’s most popular nightclubs have been unveiled today.

Halo nightclub is to close its doors for a major refurbishment in the New Year. The popular multi-award winning night spot which hosts some of the world’s best DJs and artists as well as premiership promotion celebrations, will close on New Year’s day until the end of January 2020.

Club owner Ty Temel said: “We have stood the test of time in a fiercely competitive market, but now it’s time to up our profile to match the seriously cool vibe, swipe to add a sexy filter and become Halo 2.0!”

Halo located in a former church, has seen it all from its inception in May 2013 picking up some coveted awards along the way – it won Best Club award three times.

Ty said the best design specialists in the business have been drafted in for the major transformation.

“The ambitious designs are futuristic and push boundaries, whilst still retaining the authenticity of the Church. When complete, Halo 2.0 will be unique and like no other club in the UK. Inspiration for the reimagined design has been drawn from some of the top clubs in the world and wouldn’t look out of place in Las Vegas."

He added: “This includes a brand new state-of-the-art Ciroc Lounge that has booths with built-in iPads for ordering, there’s also geometric shapes, a floating LED Matrix lighting grid, plus a top of the range L’Acoustic sound system.

“Other features of what will be an immersive experience, include a new reception, bars, booths, light, sound and yes, brand new toilets.”

Estimated re-opening date is Friday, January 31.
