    Bit of a cross over time - the old clubs were still going strong and the drugs hadnt quite become mainstream and lead to the massive influx of new places. A suit, or if not at least a tie were very much de rigueur.

    Our first experiences were a trip out to the Valley Lodge, members for a year, then Fridays where we were members. Swerving home wasnt quite the pariah it is now.

    I recall town used to consist of Legends,The Beer Keller, The Cyprus Tavern, Saturdays. Where else?
    I remember 21 Piccadilly opening - but that was about 90 I guess.

    What was the place in the back streets off Market Street - but gothy I think?

    Its all a bit of a blur

    Much more preferable than the early 80's.
    Few pills about but you didn't have to worry
    about cnuts wanting to bite your nose off
    or getting the odd pot in your face.

    I remember the Valley Lodge, Red stripe lager, a lot of the door staff always had a little bit too much to say for themselves at the end of the night for some reason.

    I remember the Continental Club (affectionately referred to as The Conti) near Whitworth Street - although if you were wearing a suit/tie, you wouldn't get in!

    I went to De Ville's off Albert Square, 2 rooms one indie, one dance, with Lional Richie's brother on the door !!

    42 second street was a great place and the Ritz on Student night

    I was an indie buy with a bit of a compulsion for goth so went to the Banshee now and again.
