Priva Club

1 Comment

An original, independent review by :

It seems that the newest trend to hit Bournemouth’s legendary night-time scene is the merger of Sushi restaurants and nightclubs. Established nightclub Priva has added the Japanese delicacy to their menu and guests can now nibble on a sweet shrimp Nigiri or a Temaki Hand Roll or two, whilst sipping on a cocktail and enjoying the plush surroundings.

Priva BournemouthIt’s the launch of Priva’s newest venture, the Sushi Lounge, and in a combined project the private nightclub has teamed up with Bournemouth’s newest Sushi bar Oishii Oishii Sushi to bring party-goers a pre-club evening meal. BHbeat’s invite included a complimentary tasting platter of Sushi delights like Tuna Sashimi and a variety of Sushi rolls.

Fresh and appealing, each piece is as tasty as the last and the small morsels provide the perfect side dish to a Cosmopolitan. The Sushi menu, available from 9pm Wednesday – Saturday, is designed to allow members and guests to have something to eat and drink to warm up for the full night of partying ahead. The menu includes everything from traditional Edamame beans and Tsunomo salad to Sashimi and hand-rolled vegetable and seafood Sushi.

Sushi seems like a great addition to the nightclub; it’s subtle, not too filling, and bang on trend. Priva’s one of those places that wouldn’t look out of place in London’s West End, with its plush leather seating areas, Marilyn Monroe-esque toilets and general glitziness. Bournemouth, known for hen dos and stag nights, offers an eclectic array of venues from laid-back pubs, dedicated student clubs and the plush and upmarket, for those who may enjoy the finer things in life. It seems that Priva is synonymous with the latter; the packed out venue still stands strong as part of Bournemouth’s vibrant night club scene.

With a capacity of 220, the nightclub offers waitress service and has two bars, five separate seated VIP Areas and a cocktail and drinks menu complete with a £900 Magnum of Champagne. There are sharing cocktails for two to six people, the obligatory shooters and everything from well made Cosmopolitans to French Martinis and Kir Royales. Sushi and Champagne packages seem to take out most of the hard work of deciding what to go for.

Choose from three packages designed for up to six: £75, £150 or £275, which all include at least one bottle of Veuve Clicquot and a Sushi mixed platter. Owner Joshua Simons told us why he and the Priva team decided to add Sushi to the mix: “We regularly get guests asking if we have food available and we thought we’d do something quite trendy and classy. So we decided to partner up with Oishii Oishii and develop a Sushi lounge style menu for early in the evening.” The Sushi element of Priva has been running since September this year and according to Joshua, has gone well. He concluded: “People have been coming in earlier having Champagne, Vodka and Sushi at their table and then staying in for the after party.”
