The Star’s social media sites have been sent on a nostalgic spin back to misspent youths at Sheffield’s old nightspots.
There has been some great debate on Facebook and Twitter about your favourite venues – and if you would like to join in then we would love to hear from you.
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.”
