HEREFORD has seen plenty of nightclubs parade over the years, but which one would you bring back?
This is exactly what we asked the people of Hereford, and here is what they had to say.
Manhattans, in St Peters Street, has been mentioned several times.
Andy Catley, who started Manhattans with Mark Spalding in 1993 as Manhattans Suite and Video Bar, closed in October 2011 to make it a craft market.
Now the School Uniform Shop is where clubbers once danced.
For those who grew up in the county in the 1990s, they were lucky enough to have one of the UK’s biggest club nights on their doorstep, Crystal Rooms.
The club seemed to be the favorite with most of the comments referring to its concerts and their various nights.
People remembered their evenings at the popular club on Bridge Street.
Emily Leroy said: “Rooms. Always rooms. It will never be anything like this.”
Ed Sulman fondly remembered the best DJs the club drew.
Ed Sulman said: “The naughty but nice Crystal Rooms used to have the best DJs, just draw Tony by Vit John W Fleming and many others, I remember the lines that did it all around the corner of the church, it’s always the phone for a late pass. ”
Leon Bullock said: “100% must be naughty but nice venues have really started to attract top DJs.”
Today the building houses the NFTO bicycle store.
Others remembered The Jailhouse, known as an “alternative place” and nicknamed “Jaily” on Gaol Street.
It had its last night in December 2014 when its leaders made the decision to leave.
Landlord Steve Harrison previously said the building’s levels of negotiation and the failure to renegotiate leases meant it was no longer sustainable.
Ed Lindsay said: “The Jaily – the best residents in the county and the best concerts every week.”
Fusion Nightclub, also previously owned by Harrison and home to Dusk Nightclub, closed less than a month later.
Other people mentioned were Marilyns, Love Joys, Booth, Redhill Hostel, and Cherrys.
Over time, Hereford clubs have come and gone, but the memories of drinking alcopops and dancing on sticky floors will always remain.
