Pryzm Watford, the location of the Monkey Business video, has closed its doors permanently, apparently.

That's sad. Also I could have sworn this was used as the filming location for something else I was watching recently. Does anyone know if it has been and if so, what it was...?

Indeed it has

I used to frequent this venue on many occasion when I used to work in Watford, albeit in its Paradise Lost/Kudos guise

I think this closure has something to do with the Landlord and Iceland, the food store

Area across the road was a better nightclub for the non cheesey tunes
