PORTMORE re-entered the club scene on Friday with the opening of Famous nightclub along the Port Henderson strip.

The 6,500 square-foot facility is sponsored by telecommunications company LIME and operated by the KLE Group, which is also behind two other popular leisure venues: The Fiction Lounge and Usain Bolt's Tracks and Records.

According to KLE CEO, Gary Matalon, the Famous is a boon for Portmore which had a thriving club scene with Cactus during the 1990s.

"Coming to Portmore is a big move for us as it has been years since the Sunshine City has had a major nightlife entertainment spot, not since the Cactus. We have made a big investment and this club is designed to match up to the likes one would find in the party meccas of the world," Matalon told the Jamaica Observer.

"Dancehall now has a new home and LIME is excited to reinforce our support of Jamaican culture with this venture," said Carlo Redwood, LIME's vice-president of marketing.

Patrons were treated to a performance from dancehall artiste Busy Signal.
