Sydney’s renowned Ladylux nightclub has reopened its doors with a chic new look and a complete makeover that has seen everything from the custom
made carpet to the dance floor completely reimagined.
Scott Bayly opened Ladylux in 2003 and ran it successfully for 5 years where it became well
known for its seductive nature, friendly atmosphere and eclectic music. After a successful run, Ladylux closed for a serious renovation and has reopened to seduce the public with a new level of sophistication and style.
Owners Scott Bayly and David Freeman worked together to oversee the renovations. Scott Bayly sees the venue’s transformation, which entails a chic new look and reinvigorated food and beverage offering, as a natural evolution, “We opened Ladylux 6 years ago and it’s been a fantastic venue. We wanted to create something new without loosing what gave Ladylux its
great vibe - designer Thomas Bucich really understood our vision and has brought it to life. It’s
great to have the doors open again and see people enjoying the results.”
David Freeman, who has come on board recently, wanted Ladylux to be a space that works on several levels, “We’ve designed the lounge area and VIP room to have a more sophisticated style, where people can enjoy fine wines and catching up with friends. The
dance floor and DJ area have a more underground
Noted Sydney designer Thomas Bucich (Wildfire, Ocean Room) was approached by Scott and David to create a fresh new look.
“The owners asked me to design a new more upmarket, lush version of the longstanding venue. In these times of doom and gloom, our clients are looking to create a new environment that exudes sexiness and luxury.”
The club will be repositioned to attract a more sophisticated clientele. “The interiors are a lush mix of Baroque meets James Bond. I’ve designed the interiors to be a bit ‘futuristic-retro’ - ala 1960s James Bond. This sleek architecture collides with rich Baroque colours, platinum and walnut finishes and the exclusivity of super-scaled baroque hand painted wall finishes by my favourite Sydney decorative painter Mark Stanford.”
New features in the club include a custom designed Piranha tank, custom one off carpet incorporating the Ladylux logo, an exclusive upholstered Absolut members room, a Tanqueray Martini Bar, a focus on wines with champagne provided by Bollinger, state of the art technology and finishes all presented in a lush environment.
