The entrance was an underwater cavern complete with shoals of fish on LCD screens sunk into the walls. Ceiling lighting units became giant jellyfish with festoons of tentacles, a bar became a coral reef of coloured lights, and the main party zone was bathed in tropical sea-blue hues. We also created a parallel pink palace of luxury and sensuality, featuring an entire wall of constantly flowing and flying confetti. The ceiling sparkled with a medley of huge mirror balls. Crystal clear seating worked with both the blue and pinks to enhance the venue’s fantasy feeling.
