A new premium bar and nightclub in the heart of Glasgow, Tuxedo Nightclub, is successfully attracting a sophisticated clientele, thanks to its vibrant and bespoke luxury vinyl flooring by Karndean Designflooring.
Located within Glasgow’s iconic Merchant City neighbourhood, the underground venue features Karndean’s Knight Tile Carrara Marble and Kaleidoscope Pennon in Opus Luna, Urbus and Ombra throughout the large bar and club area with deluxe booth seating, dance floors and VIP suites.
Designed by Tuxedo’s in-house team and Kabe Design, Tuxedo is inspired by New York’s neo-speakeasy scene and includes a statement company logo inserted into the floor, cut from Karndean’s Knight Tile Carrara Marble and a gold block colour.
MacGregor Flooring Company Ltd specified and installed Karndean Designflooring. Hamish MacGregor, managing director of MacGregor Flooring Company Ltd said: “The vision for Tuxedo was to create an upscale bar and clubbing experience in the city to rival all others, and getting the appropriate look and feel for the interior design is crucial when you want to offer a stylish and impressive go-to destination.
“This is one of the main reasons Karndean flooring was selected for this project – the beautiful look of the Knight Tile Carrara Marble and the clean, elegant lines of the geometric floor design fits so well with Tuxedo’s tasteful brand and the exclusive atmosphere they want to exude as soon as the customers walk through the door.”
Karndean’s Knight Tile Carrara takes its inspiration from opulent, classic white marble but is lighter, easier to handle, and comes with an R10 slip rating and 10-year commercial guarantee. Adding a contemporary edge is the porcelain effect of Opus Luna, the stormy Urbus, and the gentle mottle pattern of Ombra, all cut into a statement Pennon design and supported by a 15-year commercial guarantee.
Hamish added: “Karndean vinyl flooring can be intricately cut for a personalised design and we’re thrilled with how the logo turned out. It’s little touches like this that will make Tuxedo a place where people want to be seen – they’re attracting customers from near and far and they are wide eyed when they see the attention to detail that has gone into the décor. I’d highly recommend Karndean if you want something special for your design scheme.”
Matthew Speck, commercial sales director of Karndean Designflooring, said: “The wear layer and durability of the flooring was also taken into consideration as Tuxedo is open until the early hours of the morning on certain days of the week, and the dancefloors get very busy every night. Inevitably there are going to be accidental spills in a bar and club, so it’s a huge benefit for staff and customers to have a floor that is easy to clean and doesn’t get sticky underfoot.
“This impressive underground venue is a project to be really proud of and we’re thrilled to be a part of it. The interior is stunning and reflects the ambition to give guests the very best nightclub experience.”
