Pryzm is a nightclub located on Upper Parliament Street in Nottingham, England.

History[edit]

The site became vacant when Nottingham Prison was demolished. The building was constructed by the Midland Palais de Danse Company and opened as a dance hall and billiard saloon under the name Palais de Danse. The architects were Alfred John Thraves and Henry Hardwick Dawson[1] and the contractors were W. and J. Simons. The building featured a globe and frieze of dancers over the entrance. It opened to invited guests on 22 April 1925 and to the general public 2 days later.[2]

It changed its name to Ritzy, then reverted to Palais, then was Oceana[3] and is now PRYZM owned by the Deltic Group.

It was refurbished in 2005 by Bignell Shacklady Ewing.
