Gotta agree about the old place, but since the relaunch - Porthouse Nightclub has become a serious part of the Winchester Scene, yet still gets a bad reputation for some unknown reason.

Probably not aimed at the older crowd (apart from Friday 80s night), it does appeared to be well-loved by students and those pretending to still be. Interesting and funky vibe - perhaps showing that historic Winchester can still make it as a good night out.

I've been to this place 6 times and only been let in once. The main reason seems to be bcos i am not a chav. Other times they've just ignored us.
I wasnt dressed correctly once whereas the group of idiots in ben sherman, shiny shoes and gold earings were let straight in.

I have never met such horrible and unpleasant door staff, they are rude and seem to pick on people for no reason.

I witnessed completely unprovoked, highly aggressive behaviour from them towards some people.
I would recommend going somewhere else in Winchester to be treated like a proper customer. Unfortunately the place is great otherwise, a good atmosphere with fun cheesy music.

The Porthouse is great, on a Thursday night you have to be there by 10pm or it is 1 in 1 out. The staff are friendly and aren't threatening at all. The drinks are cheap and the music is great. What more could u ask for?
