Since 2007 ’Soul On The Sea’ has quickly become a popular Northern, Motown, Modern & Club Classic ‘flexible’ Soul night that now seriously appeals to all generations from across the country. It’s very difficult ‘not to find’ this fantastic 320 degree sea view venue ‘Key West’ at the very end of Bournemouth Pier! The second ‘Reggae (Ska) Room’ was introduced two years later and gives everyone quality sound choice in a smaller but just as atmospheric venue.
