Peppermint place was the 1st nightclub I went to with my now wife.

I loved Brum in the 80's it was a great place to be.

Never went to the venues club, popped into the Nightingale once.

The Elbow room was a good place to go.

I'm trying to find Mike Hilkeen who used to manage Pagoda Park in the 80's.

He was the GM at the club, he turned it round and made it a great club after Peter Clements (old GM) moved on.

We were good friends, but I lost contact when I moved over to the states to work and live.

Lots of straight people went there too.

Do you remember Cagney on Canon Street in the city.
