Halo Nightclub in Bournemouth is a popular destination for club-goers and has a fascinating history. The building itself dates back to the 19th century when it was a Methodist chapel. In the 1960s, it became a cinema before becoming a nightclub in the 1990s.
Since then, Halo has become integral to Bournemouth's nightlife scene. It has played host to some of the biggest names in music, including Calvin Harris and Disclosure. The club's popularity has grown, attracting locals and tourists with its lively atmosphere and diverse music selection.
Over the years, Halo has undergone several renovations to keep up with the changing times. The most recent renovation in 2019 saw the club receive a £500,000 investment to upgrade its sound and lighting systems, ensuring it remains at the forefront of Bournemouth's nightlife.
Despite the changes, the venue has retained its unique character and heritage. The club's original stained glass windows and exposed brickwork add charm and remind visitors of its past as a chapel.
Overall, Halo Nightclub is a great place to dance and socialise and a venue with a rich history and cultural significance in the local area.
