    Default Disbanded Nightclubs in Liverpool


    ADVERTISING


    Would like to know more about nightclubs/raves etc that have now closed down in Liverpool. Especially the 80s/90s ones

    Here's a small list:

    The Venue

    The Paradox

    Heaven

    Pulse

    The State

    Here's a bit about the history of some of the buildings.

    The Venue, Green Lane, Tuebrook.
    Originally built in the 1960s as a bowling alley next door to the Carlton/ABC cinema.

    The Paradox.
    Originally built as Vernons Football Pools.

    The State, Dale Street.
    Originally built 1905 as the State Restaurant as part of the State Insurance Building.
    Same architect (W. Aubrey Thomas) as the Liver Building.

    When I started going out in the late 80s I remember particularly Flintlocks (Fleet St), McMillans (Concert St) and Four Seasons (Bold St)

    Isn't it sad now that there's nowhere really to go if you just want to lose yourself in the music. I had a fantastic time in the 90's when you would finish work for the weekend, head in to town and go to either Cream (or the Conti - showing my age) and just let the music be your drug?

    Everything was forgotten, the only worry what the next tune was and whether to spend your cab fair on a last Red Bull.

    Now, all of those clubs went from gangland violence and drugs and kids with knives - is there nowhere to go anymore to just dance your knackers off?
