I'm 54, the clubs were my stomping ground.

Every Friday and Saturday nights I was there.

Can you recall paying silly money to get into clubs on Christmas and New Years Eve.

Also the tie rule, no tie no entry.

It was always the rock clubs I went to regularly - Eddies, XL's at Five Ways, The Institute (Digbeth).  Went to The Powerhouse a few times & also Snobs.  Nightingales was good for a party atmosphere, although I only went there a couple of times.

XL's at Five Ways was good, I used to go there to.

Maxwells wine bar was a descent place too, although it wasn't a nightclub.

I went to Libertys a few times but, preferred the city centre clubs.

I used to drink in the White Lion on Bristol Street, the clubs were all within 5 minutes walk.

I thought that Liberys considered themselves the best Club, it was quite exciting.
I used Maxi Millians, Faces and Peppermint Place, all good clubs , could get hot in there during a hot summer.
Where did you go and eat?

I used to eat at the Shah Bagh, and Stakis Casino on Hill Street.

In 1983, I used to eat at the Berni Inns on the ramp, just off new Street.
