One of Luton’s biggest nightclubs will be closed due to falling trade, we can reveal.

Liquid & Envy, on Gordon Street, currently operates four nights a week but has seen a sharp dip in the amount of patrons it attracts.

The club’s operator, the Deltic Group, has said that due to falling numbers the club will shut its doors for good on Saturday May 30.

Liquid & Envy has 30 employees on its books.

The decline of the nightclub follows the plight of Chicago’s, also on Gordon Street, which was closed in 2013.

A spokesperson from the Deltic Group said: “Following a long-term decline in footfall in the town centre, we have taken the difficult decision to close Liquid & Envy.

“We would like to thank all our employees, who have worked so hard in tough operating conditions to provide our loyal customers with a fun, safe and great value night out.

“We are currently consulting with our team about future opportunities.”
