NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The new owner of the French Quarter's Oz plans to begin extensive renovations in the next 30 days.

According to our partners at New Orleans CityBusiness, Oz owner Mike Motwani wants to make the nightclub bigger and better. He won the club at auction in July with a bid of $8.175 million dollars.

800 Enterprises LLC has a lease on the site. "Oz used to be the premier club in the city … we intend to bring it back," 800 Enterprises LLC manager Madeline Schwartz said.

Motwani and Schwartz say some of the upgrades will include better lighting. They won't disclose more than that.

They don't intend to close the club for renovations.
