Attraction details
Owner description: Le Chic Nightclub is one of Bournemouth's newest and hottest clubs located in the middle of the very popular Old Christchurch Road with plenty of great bars and restaurants around to get you ready for the memorable night Le Chic offers. With a choice of VIP Booths, The Gold Room or The VIP Lounge in Le Chic you can add that extra special touch to make the night all the more memorable whether it be a Birthday Party, Office Night Out, A Corporate do or even a Stag or Hen night. All the VIP Areas and Booths include bottle to table service for your entire evening in a luxurious environment. The VIP Lounge boasts its own Private Bar in addition to its own separate sound system and Dj and it's an awesome place to have your own Private Party. The Gold Room is situated overlooking and next to the main dance floor. It enjoys its own stage which gives you an unrivalled view of the main action. To book any of the VIP areas there is normally a £150.00 minimum spend but should you wish to volunteer your own budget then bespoke packages are available and are amazingly good value. A small deposit is payable on booking and the remainder can be paid on the night. Free entry, Queue Jump and VIP Hostess table service is also included with any package.

Went here as a group with friends on last night (21/04) after being pulled in off the street with an offer. The club was open to the public and was half empty. A few of the girls were outside having a cigarette and witnessed a lady, who was particularly large in size, nicely dressed and on her own and attempt to walk in the club. Free entry for all. However the bouncer stopped her and advised her they the club was closed for a private function and she could not come in. Absolutely disgusting, as it was clear that he had made this decision himself based on her appearance! Many people were allowed in after too. The bouncer, who had a badly cut Mohawk for a haircut and an orange appearance, was completely out of order for discriminating her like that. How awful she must have felt.

Absolutely disgusting behaviour from a well known establishment in Bournemouth and all 28 of us will be going out of our way to spread the word to avoid the place at all costs! The place was also grubby, smelly and the drinks were double the price of most other clubs.

To whom it may concern,
I'm sorry that you have felt the need to write such a review of Le Chic.
I shall take your concerns and comment on them individually.
Firstly your remarks about the Lady being refused entry and being told that there was a private party on. This is a extremely well practised method of refusing entry to someone who the door supervisor believes to be too drunk to enter or indeed someone who may in the past have caused problems in the club. Using this method gives the person no grounds for a discussion or argument about their right to enter. It is a fool proof way of refusal with the absolute minimum of fuss as the person will just go on their way as they don't have any grounds to argue. Having said that i struggle to know how the girls know what was said by the doorman or the lady as the smoking area is 25 yards away and on a busy street. I'm not questioning that they did hear what was said just remarking on their ability to hear in that environment.
I feel very strongly that the chances are that they have made an assumption as to why this lady was refused and find your comments extremely unfair and misleading. The door supervisor in question is a very experienced doorman with over 10 years experience and for him to act in the fashion you describe would be completely out of character.
Secondly, your comments stating that the venue "was also grubby, smelly and the drinks were double the price of other clubs",
i have to ask myself, were you actually in Le Chic as we take great pride to ensure that the venue is kept to the highest standard of cleanliness and to call it grubby and smelly is just an insult. As for the pricing you will find that we are on a par if not cheaper than most of our competitors in the town. Yes granted there are some pubs like Weatherspoons that are cheaper but its hardly the same market. Its like complaining that BMW's are more expensive than Skodas.
I do hope you will take my comments in the good faith that they are meant.
Finally, you may well check with other members of your party how they actually feel as they have reported back that they had a wonderful time in Le Chic.

We visited this club for a hen party night out and we weren't disappointed. Not being local we took a chance on this club as it allowed us to wear fancy dress whereas a lot of the other clubs would not. There were 20 of us in total and all of us had a fantastic evening. We hired a VIP booth, which is only meant for 16 people, however we were all up dancing all night so had plenty of room for those who did want a 5 min sit down. The staff were lovely and very attentive, nothing was too much of a problem. A drink was accidentally spilt in the booth and within seconds a staff member was mopping it up. All in all I would definitely visit this club again if back down in Bournemouth. Thank you for a fabulous night.

We hit Le Chic on Friday night and booked a booth with a min £200 spend with bottles of spirits and mixers. We had 12 in our group mainly in our 30s with a couple of older lads. We spent most of the evening in the booth and on the dancefloor and had such a laugh. The staff were all absolutely superb and embraced our good-natured antics. Diana hosted us and was a standout. She was on hand all night, attentive and could look after herself on the dancefloor, too... Can thoroughly recommend a place which will now be a fixture on our Bournemouth nights out.
