Portsmouth’s most popular nightclub and renowned for the best student nights, The Astoria is the home of Oh La La, The Eskimo Project and Dirty Disco.

With three floors of music and an exclusive VIP area, The Astoria has something for everyone to enjoy.

The building is as impressive as the nightclub itself, designed by Victorian Architect Arthur Edward Cogswell, the former Palace Cinema in Portsmouth is a Grade II listed building. 

Located in the city center's popular Guildhall Walk, it’s the perfect venue for the nightclub

"Just Develop It's investment helped us deliver a high end and beautiful nightclub for our customers to enjoy.

Ali Richie, Managing Director


With this fantastic building situated amongst some of the south coast's busiest bars, the team saw an investment opportunity which couldn't be overlooked. 

Just Develop It purchased the Grade II listed Palace Cinema building in January, 2013 and after decades of neglect, the building was given the green light for restoration.

Following a million pound investment in the summer of 2013 to refurbish and revive the historic building, The Astoria nightclub opened its doors for the first time in September 2013 with a very special weekend of entertainment, and ushered in a new era for an amazing building.


The Astoria is Portsmouth's premier night club. Located in the city center's popular Guildhall Walk.
