I think the Steps bar is on Stockwell street.I remember Minstrals well YokerBloke it used to do a lot of live music.
Have we talked about Hooters round the corner in Oswald Street?
The big apple was in York Street before The Videodrome.

I'm sure it was quite near where 'Ragnarok' was.
Remember that short-lived bar!!!

Remember the Festival Bar on Argyle st. just along from where Anderston Bus station was. Quite a few prostitutes used to come in before going off to 'work'

Also, The Maggie (where Yates's is on Sauchiehall St)! I remember looking in one time (I was about 17 I think) and seeing downstairs pool tables and bikers. Never had the nerve to go in.

kirkyguy, wasnt it called knightsbridge or sw1 or a combination of both? i remember going in the late 80s, it was one of the first acid house type of clubs in the city. (smilies and bandanas were a must, cringe) it had a basement and an upper floor if i remember. this was on the gorbals side of the river- carlton place.

Wasnt it also called the Hacienda for a while?

Yes, I know there was a nightclub of the same name somewhere else :wink: but I'm sure that wouldnt stop them borrowing the name for a while.

ok own up- who went to the plaza in the 80s & 90s? the late 80s it was mostly a grab a granny sort of night. we used to go before eleven because it was cheaper, the downside was that we had to listen to the glen miller type band for an hour till the disco started :roll: in the 90s it became a sort of ravey place for a while and even had a few gigs- m people ,farm etc. now sadly closed down. i wonder why no one has taken it over , it would make a great pub

They ran Tea Dances for old timers for a while, just before it closed. I'm sure the BBC or ITV did a wee documentary about it.
Next door (and very briefly), there was a really upmarket fish'n'chip shop, a proper sit down dinner establishment in the mold of Anton Mossiman's place in London. They were hoping to get trade from the Tramway Avant Garde types who were at that time (the early 90s0 flocking over the river to see the likes of Willem Dafoe starring in various peculiar productions of things like Chinese theatre translated into German. It was in the wrong place at the wrong time and never took off, the mime aficianados and Norwegian Opera fans heading back into town to the Triangle or the Colonial. I think my mum and dad went once and didn't rate it, but I never heard of anyone else go.
