If you frequented Klute in the early noughties or were more recently a regular at Truth, you will agree that The Bonsai Lounge, the latest resident in this prestigious plot, has a great location. The club is based just off Exeter Road in a quiet part of Bournemouth town centre half way between the beach and the Square. Whether you’re looking for a “statement” venue to celebrate a big occasion or you’re after a luxurious “one last drink” on your way home from a dressy bar or restaurant The Bonsai Lounge fits the bill.
The Bonsai Lounge is the brainchild of the people behind the former Funki Sushi, who turned their attentions to crafting you this luxurious and discreet escape dripping with Asian luxury. They bring all the trademark gloss and fittings to create an authentic Oriental-style nightclub radiating a cosy and opulent ambience.
The Bonsai Lounge opens on Friday and Saturday nights between 11pm and 4am and the attitude is classy so it’s best to dress to impress. The venue successfully combines the latest in Western club culture with the art and serene beauty of the Orient.
On Fridays, it’s Money II Blow, a musical fiesta blending hip-hop, grime and RNB with drinks offers and 2-4-1 cocktails. Saturday night is the turn of Love Saturdays, a premium club night featuring a mix of music from DJ Bacca crossing the genres from House, RnB, party classics and pop.
If you want to make your night extra special, The Bonsai Lounge has a range of VIP drinks packages to explore ranging from £90 to £500 with Geisha-inspired service to a reserved, plush, Japanese-styled booth. The basic package gets you a VIP table, bottle of house spirit, mixers and ten entries to the club. Trade-ups include premium spirits like Smirnoff, Absolut and Ciroc vodkas and extra club admissions.
The Bonsai Lounge successfully upholds its serene Oriental style, with statues and low tables fashioning this venue into a warm and welcoming retreat. With a dance floor and sociable seating, it’s also a great place to meet up, have a dance and party with your friends.
