Hi everyone!

Thought I'd tag onto this thread as it seemed the most appropriate.......can anyone remember the name of the nightclub in the early/mid 80's that was (I think) situated in the basement of this building opposite the railway station on corner of Carrington Street & Sheriffs Way?
Used to visit it quite frequently with a mate back in early/mid 80's.
I'm not 100% sure but I think it may have began with a Z but I could be wrong.
Can't find any info anywhere on tinternet about it so thought I'd try my luck here.
It's bugging the life out of me.please someone put me out of my misery!:shout:
I've attached image of location.
Thanks all!

Hello CarlTP

 

I think the place you are referring to was the Bier Keller (so your guess about beginning with a Z was slightly wrong).  Famous for being the home of Karl & the Heidelburgers.

 

There are several threads on here which mention it.

I think the one Carl is referring to, was the Mardi Gras which took over the premises when the Bierkeller closed down.

Does anyone remember The imperial on St James Street where all the bikes parked down the middle of the street and Mortimers on a Saturday with Metal Mickey and The Boat Club on a Saturday Rock City was Friday night x

 

I remember it well, but mostly on a Sunday night, with bands that couldnt make the Saturday gigs. The front of the pub was just the pub, with the acts down the side passage and at the rear of the pub. Still a decent turn out though.
