Pubs and clubs

Sadly, there are numerous which are now lost to the town. Do you remember going to any of these?

In 1989, the popular club Clouds became Easy Street, even hosting Linda Lusardi in its heyday.
The Church Street venue didn't stop as Clouds with the younger generation now recalling the venue's later days as Tokyo Jo's & more recently as Lava and Ignite in 2001.
