  • oyster quay on poole quay
  • The Viking club (Woody's) has now been sold and turned into flats, what a shame. Lots of people had a good time there if you were one of them add something to this site.
  • there's a clubby/pubby type place near The Lighthouse AKA Poole Arts Centre. It's called Chillis, so anyone who says there are no clubs apart from Lators in Poole is wrong!!!!!
  • There' the Opera House and Elements in Bournemouth but I don't know where they are as I haven't been there because I'm underage and never want to go clubbing anyway. O, and there's a place called The Venue in Tower Park which I think is still there.
  • I have also heard that the Venue is due to re-open. Apparently in November (rings a bell, this time last year). I have also heard that it is going to do live music aswell(?). We can only live in hope eh!
  • Whats happening with the Venue anyone know? One minuite it's open - and a bag of shite - now its closed and I've heard it's going to be open by some people from London.
  • I have heard that the Venue is to be taken over by some London guys who have some great ideas. Remember the good old days? Top DJ's etc. Should be good. Anyone else heard anything?
  • Please update your site on poole the venue is now re-open latours is now chillis dance bar, and the viking club is now woodys but still a shit hole from a poole resident
  • Poole Con club's a very friendly place with cheap drinks.
  • There is a new club called Chillis next to the Arts Centre (soon to be the Light House) - rather cheesy and a bit crap but ok if you have had a few!
  • Well I have heard that the Venue is due to re-open so look out La'hoares ie: Latores.
  • the viking, above the aquarium on the quay, low ceiling though, so shorties are ok here.
  • Only the Viking or Lators, but unless you want a dose from a slappa or you wish to get bottled by some moron.....steer clear. Yates down the High Street has excellent clubby nights with Friday being especially good (hot babes everywhere!!!) - only open 'till 11 though. Go to B'Mouth for a club!
  • There are actually TWO, count em, clubs in Poole, one being the aformentioned Lators (shithole) and the other being the Viking, above the Aquarium on Poole Quay, which sadly is also a shithole.
  • Go to Bournemouth, Lators is now the only club in Poole and it's shit.
  • No decent clubs unless you are a piss pathetic conformist casual dressed in adidas, listen to talentless shite like Oasis and have a penis hairstyle ( basin cut shaped like a human penis).
  • Poole has none worth talking about at all, go to Bournemouth like everybody else
  • Don't go to Lators, its full of dodgy kevs and slappers.
  • Only naff clubs especially the Venue.
