While we wait for pubs and nightclubs to reopen, the Echo looks back at the opening of nightclub Cameo.

The stars were out in force for the official VIP launch party of Cameo and Myu bar in March 2013.

Reality TV show Geordie Shore was represented by Ricci Guarnaccio & Holly Hagan alongside a host of glamorous entertainment.

Following the closure of several high profile Bournemouth nightclubs around the time, it was a positive sign to see the launch of a new clubbing venue.

The Cameo and Myu club on Firvale Road underwent a £1million refurbishment from its previous form as Lava Ignite.

With its sophisticated decor, state of the art sound and lighting system, glamorous booths and table service, the bar and nightclub has had a large impact on Bournemouth nightlife.

The VIP launch night celebrated the new addition to Bournemouth’s nightlife in fine style - as these pictures show.
