Yet the memories you have of dancing until your feet ached or listening to the songs of your favourite singer or band will stay with you forever. SurreyLive has looked back on some of the county's best nightspots over the years. We haven't included all the venues across Surrey but would love to hear your memories of any that do not feature on our list, so we can add them on and keep the nostalgia alive. Remember the days of a night out in Bo's in Guildford?

The queues used to be out the door as clubbers waited to make their way into the two-floor club in Woodbridge Road. ID was checked by the burly bouncers and you then headed off into the darkness to see what the night had to offer. Crazy coloured carpet and two floors of nightclub to explore, a night at Bo's, which was ly a cinema, was certainly memorable. Sadly the once attractive building was demolished inas the town said farewell to another part of its heritage.

First things first, Cinderella's recently re-opened with its original name returning after many years, so clubbers have the chance to relive their dancing days at the revamped North Street venue. Now very much open but in a different form thanks to the hard work of campaigners from the Phoenix Cultural Centre, Quake is now known as Fiery Birdrunning as a music and arts venue with regular music nights and events.

In the late s and early s, Quake was a nightclub and it was heaving. You started your night at Wetherspoons with a few cheap bevvies, before heading across the road to the once much-loved Rat and Parrot and its famous mint chocolate test tube shots and its gigantic staircase, which someone always stumbled down. In Chameleon you waited at the bar for your sambuca shots, listened to the tunes thanks to DJ Leroy Wilson and then headed to Quake to dance the night away, probably to numerous garage tunes.

You didn't forget your disposable camera, either.

The former Chameleon bar, which later closed and re-opened under a new name, has now been taken on and transformed by social media personality, Dapper Laughs. Remember the days of the Jazzmine? That little place with the low ceiling in Broadway, where it got so warm, you couldn't stop buying drink after drink just to keep yourself hydrated in its tropical climes. More of a music venue than a nightclub, The Atalanta ballroom in Wokingor The Ata as it was also known, was famous locally for its sprung dance floor, which was supposed to be one of the best in Surrey, if not the south-east.

Before it closed init was a venue for shows and pop concerts. Many Woking residents, past and present, will have great memories of their time spent at The Atalanta. Pantiles was the place to be back in the day. Sir Elton John and Fleetwood Mac even graced the stage there.

Unless you were lucky enough to have the Young Enterprise group in your year organise a charity under 18s night there, where you could get a brief glimpse of your night-clubbing days to come. The DJs played their final tunes at the club in Julyexactly 40 years after the club welcomed its first guests in It was knocked down and replaced with a Sunrise Senior Living care home, despite calls from campaigners to save it. Prior to its closure, owner Bob Archer said: "Everybody at Pantiles is determined in the time left available to celebrate 40 years under the same ownership, with special appreciation to the many members who have nostalgic memories of great times enjoyed under the old beamed roof.

Ragamuffins may have shut in but the clubbers who partied there in its heyday have organised reunions over the years to take a trip back in time to their nightclub days. Ragamuffins Nightclub was a social hub in the town for around 20 years, attracting clubbers from west Surrey as well as north east Hampshire. In its heyday during the s, customers danced to classics hits by, among others, Boy George, Madonna and Duran Duran, who were all battling for chart success, and the popularity of the club even saw it reach the finals in the UK Discotheque of the Year competition.

The venue also hosted the annual Miss Camberley competition, which was a popular diary date for many — with the winners going on to compete in Miss UK. If you were a big fan of Liquid Envy, then you would have been sad when the final tunes were played there in Once the Odeon cinemathe site of the former nightclub has been transformed into a new flat development named The Picturehouse. The building itself, which opened inwas an Odeon cinema until and was converted into a nightclub in the s.

JJ Whispers in Reigate was in the unit now occupied by Mishiko nightclub. It was fairly small with a modest dancefloor but still had a small VIP area, and a circular bar area at the front of the club. Bar Med was a much-loved nightspot in Crawley, particularly with cabin crew, and even had a few ghost stories associated with it. Staff spoke of a ghostly figure that appeared occasionally downstairs and it's believed to have been the area where the seating used to be in the venue's life as a cinema.

Staff also claimed to have been attacked by a ghost in an upstairs storage area, including one occasion when lightbulbs were apparently thrown. JJ Whispers in Crawley was much bigger and even had karaoke pods you could hire out. It had a decent sized dancefloor and toilets that became famous when Channel 4 TV series, The Nightclub Toilet, was filmed there.

It followed people's drunken chats and antics in the toilets filmed with consent and one bloke even attempted to breakdance on the floor in a suspicious wet patch. The Clarence Street nightclub opened in and when it came to nightclubs across Surrey, Oceana was pretty impressive. Clubbers could throw some shapes in the disco room with its colour-changing dancefloor, then move into the giant ballroom or chill out in the ski-chalet style room. It was a popular nightspot for students too. Here's what one Surrey clubber had to say about his time frequenting the clubs in Surrey in the s.

We'd spend much of the evening in the front bar, just chatting the night away often with the manager, Bob Archer, as one of the group was quite friendly with him. Whatever the night was, it was always a giggle until it was time to get a taxi given that it was in Bagshot.

Given it was closer to home we were probably here most and generally, it was a fun night, although it was not unknown for there to be some trouble.
