    Do you know why it’s closed? I know Dave’s about 65 now but I’ve heard he still does all nighters when he goes out so it can’t be just his age. Did something happen on NYE that’s caused it? I’m surprised they didn’t have a closing party because it’d be absolutely hammered the amount of people who love that place.

    It's nothing to do with his age mate, Dave's fine, nothing happened on New Year's Eve, I agree though, shame they weren't able to have a proper closing party.

    I used to leave Jilly’s at 7am. McDonald’s opposite then the 192 home to Longsight. The looks I’d get.

    Can’t have been that good if it’s shutting
     
  5. Preferred it back in the old place at club V. Wasn’t really the same when they moved, I ended up in there in September and it had proper gone down hill with groups of stags in there that would have never got in previously.

    Fair play to them for keeping it going so long, Sankeys and Venus now gone. Not many other places to go out listen to some house and get off your nut.

    Lots of good places shut over the years for many reasons, it's not as simple as that.

    Thought it was full of pretentious twats and a bit boring but it did well to last so long in this day and age.

    Aah right, so it was a lease issue?

    Tbf, I have been noticing there's been less people in there of late. Even on NYE, room 2 wasn't open which is a sad state of affairs. I've been there when it's just been room 2 open so things are definitely going downhill plus the fact that the location is a little bit off the beaten track with some of the rip off bars around Peter Street/Spinningfields becoming more popular these days despite the fact that they're soulless boxes, playing shite hip hop. Sad times for house music. He should reopen it in another location, maybe fortnightly but obviously it's gonna be difficult to negotiate a lease for that.
