    Default Bojanglez. Guildford.


    After many years of looking at it i finally got to take a look, batterd and broken, pitch black and full of pigeons, Bojanglez nightclub still has a few sercrets it want to tell.

    without going to the history centre i dont have much of a histroy for you apart from my local knowledge.
    build as a theatre in the 30's the building has an elegant past, as we move into the modern day it became a cinema and then a number of nightclubs, Pulse then Bojanglez.
    Doors closed somewhere around 98, 2000 and other than a fire in 2011 the place has been left to the birds that now nest in the main room

    Once we were in we had a good look round and found some intresting little finds....

    Oh the memories.
    I used to go to this club every weekend without fail. They were not very strict on ID and we were let in from the age of 15. Maybe this was part of the reason it was shut down ?
    I believe it was closed before 2007, there is another report on it on this site...

    Nice one mate. Seeing that revealed plasterwork made me wonder if the building or facade are listed?

    i do hope so because this whole street is empty apart from a burger place and what nots.
    there planing to build on it i think.
    you can see some nice architecture out the front but the whole fronts ruined when they painted it red, inside there are hints of the old theatre as pictured, u can access the surounding buildings from the same way in but most have been gutted.
    oposite side of the road is the same....intresting office building there tho i wanna have a look at at some point.
