Atlantis opened in January 1998 at the Valley and was at the time Bolton’s largest nightclub with the capacity for 2,500 clubbers.

The club which, cost a reported £5 million pounds to open and was billed as a superclub for the Millennium, closed in March 2004 hit by heavy financial difficulties after failing to attract enough clubbers to its out-of-town location.

We have collected together a gallery of pictures from The Bolton News archives taken at Atlantis during 2002.

So take a look through our clubbers gallery and maybe you’ll spot a familiar face or two enjoying a night out at Atlantis.
