Continuing The Star Retro’s delve into Sheffield’s lost nightclubs, today we turn to five more former venues which are no more.
The one with the most controversial story is undoubtedly Element.
The club was shut down by the courts after three men, including a 22-year-old, were allegedly stabbed on the Charter Row premises following what was described as a ‘full scale brawl’.
Police and councillors refused an application for the club to reopen, in October 2004, spelling the end for Element once and for all.
Fiesta, opened in August 1970, had a very different past.
Situated in Arundel Gate, the club cost £500,000 to create and was host to a 1,300 seat amphitheatre.
The club, attracted some massive names including Stevie Wonder, The Beach Boys and the Jackson Five, according to reports.
The club met its end in 1980, but its problems began in 1976 due to a 17-day strike by workers looking to join a union.
By 1980, the club closed for good, despite efforts by new management.
Today, the building hosts the Odeon cinema, opened in 1992.
Naturally, nobody in Sheffield can forget Roxy Disco.
The legendary club, which is now the O2 Academy venue, is deeply engrained in Sheffield’s history.
The two-floor, massive club also attracted real stars, including Kylie Minogue and Jason Donavan on the bill.
The Limit, based on West Street, was a popular spot.
Famously, Sheffield licensing officials told the club, which was trading from 1978 to 1991, it could not open unless its owners agreed never to allow punk rock band The Sex Pistols to play, such was the paranoia about the upstart anarchic outfit in the late 1970s.
