Bars & Nightclubs
GMP have been designing late night music venues for over 22 years and are seen as experts in the nightclub sector. In the past, the Managing Director of GMP -Neil Morten- was a co-owner of 6 night clubs and was a DJ in some of the UK’s most coveted clubs, giving him the knowledge to truly understand all there is to know about club design. GMP are famous for working on the global roll out of Ministry Of Sound and award winning Mini Bar.
As innovators in our sector we are always looking to bring the latest technology to nightclub design. For example, GMP designed and introduced an illuminated seat (a variation of the Celebrity Booth) to the late-night leisure industry in 2011; it has recently been installed into Club 195 Epping, Essex, and is set to change the way that customers interact with the night club. For our customers who operate late-night venues in built-up areas, we utilise the revolutionary JBN Sound Ceiling. Using the latest in audio technology, these speakers project sound into a given area and stop music escaping the venue and therefore waking up the neighbours. These are just a few of the revolutionary items we like to include in our work, for more info, check out our portfolio or have a look at our products page.
"We were novice operators when we first approached GMP. Their guidance and straight talking approach was very helpful. We completed our £45,000 project in time to open for Christmas 2012. Neil Morten then attended our site on a follow up visit and helped us improve our back bar merchandising at no charge. We were so impressed with GMP they've now been appointed to design our 30 bedroom boutique hotel." Okey Nwosu - Manager, Dreams Hotel, Real Dreams Leisure
"During my time as Operations Director for Ministry of Sound we embarked upon a project to develop a new bar concept which was to be called Minibar. Having identified a potential site for development, a number of highly regarded design consultants were asked to respond to the project brief, one of which was Neil Morten of GMP. This was not an easy task due to a challenging building. GMP were the only company to satisfy every aspect of the design brief and hence won the contract." Tony Rigg - Operations Director, Ministry of Sound
"GMP are experts in dealing with customers from a different country. They quickly understand the cultural differences and deliver outstanding projects, so much so that their VIP lounge in Singapore now has the largest champagne sales in East Asia." Peter Bowden - Project Director, Ministry Of Sound, World Wide Clubs Ltd
"I have worked with GMP for the past 15 years, they are always able to think outside the box in order to find great value for money. The GMP team give great bang for the buck and their interior design skills are definitely part of the reason we regularly appear in the top five of the Sunday Times’ student experience poll." Andy Parsons - General Manager, Loughborough Students Union
"GMP's knowledge of the UK club market & vision for the future was a revelation. We appointed GMP on the spot and commissioned them to create the new direction for our venue. The scheme they came up with was Brilliant and blew us away. Their Managing Director suggested that we join the newly formed BIOBC (British Independent Operators Buying Consortium) as they could potentially raise us brand funding - they raised us nearly 20k. We are so pleased with GMP that we have recommended them to a number of other operators." David King - Club 195, Epping
"GMP were recommended to me by the project team at The Chicago Rock Cafe. From the moment we met the team we felt instantly at ease; we gave them our budget and they delivered far further than expectations. Their nightclub design looked like a London club, however it was done on a shoe string budget. GMP truly are the experts in the art of the sparkle spend. We are so pleased with GMP that we have commissioned them again to deal with our next venue in Nuneaton." Panos Toulouras - Manager, Club Sosho, Leicester
"We have been working with GMP every summer for the past three years. Fantastically creative, GMP really understand the student market - and more importantly - its recent changes. The presentation work they produced to assist us in raising University funding is brilliant and goes a long way towards getting a project to the starting line. This summer GMP delivered yet again and we'll be using them again for our next project." Ben Eagle - Cardiff University Students Union
"I discovered GMP via a Google search when I was investigating the feasibility of my site in Kettering. The team were very quick to respond and met me on site within a few days. The advice I received during our initial meeting was so in-depth I was able to write my business plan in a matter of days. Their knowledge about the late-night leisure business was excellent." Michael Justice - London
