Here are some of our favourite comments so far – starting with Roxy, or Top Rank, depending on your age:

Lucy Birks: “This was the first nightclub I went in (under age). I also used to go in Uropa and Republic/Gatecrashe… some happy memories.”

Donna Eyre: “The favourite has got to be Roxy. I had some fantastic nights in there. Bring it back ... lol.”

Denise Faben: “They wouldn’t let me in even on my hen night lol.”

Paul Timmins: “I remember it better as The Top Rank. I used to frequent that place Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings (both sessions) in the 70s – a great place inside and quite big too. My highlight of going there was seeing AC/DC before they were well known, again in the ’70s! It was about the time of their High Voltage album.”

Dean Jessop: “I hate to admit this but I saw the ..... New Bay City Rollers with Ian Flower one New Years Eve. Sorry Ian!”

Kathryn Sykes: “Oh those were the days, Saturday mornings spent at Top Rank.”

Kim Stenton: “I had some great nights in Roxy’s and the Mulberry Tavern. I miss those days.”

Sharon Richardson: “It used to be Rebels and Roxy’s on a Monday night for rock night – on the occasional times I go out now it’s down to Corp.”

There are lots of others places that still bring back nostalgic, if a little hazy, memories.

Sarah Williams-Rooker: “ Roxy’s, Berlins, Uropa, Empire bar, Fountain bar, Millionaires, the Stonehouse, Pulse, Club WOW! and the one with the revolving dance floor – I think it was called Reef. The late ’90s to year 2000 were GOOD!”

Linda Holmes: “I went to Romeo’s and Juliet’s, then Cairo Jax as well as Black Swan back in the 80s.”

Carol Hibberd: My favourites were Crazy Daisy and Limit – I met my hubby there 1979!”

Louise Crofts: “The best were Palais, Occasions and Roxy for a cheesy club.”

Lee Oldale: “The Golden Ball… across to the Wig and Pen… down for a cheeky Stella in Dove and Rainbow…Blue bell next… Legends …Mulberry… the Roxy’s.”

Sue Hutchinson: “Every weekend I used to finish the night off in Merry England..underneath Black Swan ....loved it.”

Simon Gagg: “The best were Isabellas, Romeo’s and Juliet’s, Josephines, Max’s Downtown Bar, CJs… Oh and Crazy Daisy and Gossips.”

Philip King: “It has always gotta be the Leadmill for me.”

Steve Knight: “Dancing with the two girls from The Human League at Isabellas was definitely a highlight around 1983/4.”

Hayley: “I remember Romeo’s and Juliet’s! Walking from one room to another, the smell of perfume mixed with my Pernod and black.

“Awww, takes me back a few years! I was only 16 when I first went in there – naughty.”

Rochie: “Republic was by far the best club in Sheffield... I was so gutted when it burnt down.”
