As the city counts down to celebrated ‘90s club The Roxy heralding the end of lockdown we ask the question – what was Sheffield’s favourite club of the era that gave us The Full Monty and Supertram?
The city’s Dirty Stop Outs are conducting a poll to discover the best nightclub of the 1990s and want your vote.
It’s an era that saw Sheffield heralded as one of the dance music capitals of the UK and even saw clubbers making the journey from New York City for a night on the tiles!
Nightclubs like the Republic, Bed, Gatecrasher, Niche, the Roundhouse, the Arches and many more will be forever synonymous with the decade.
But the 1990s venue that’s been re-created to welcome hundreds of punters to celebrate the first weekend after all Covid restrictions are lifted is The Roxy.
On Saturday, June 26th, a massive reunion is set to take place at the O2 Academy – the venue’s former home.
Dirty Stop Out’s Neil Anderson is working on a brand new edition of the ‘Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1990s Sheffield’ and is putting the call out to former clubbers to decide which venue gets their vote as the best.
The winner is set to feature on the book’s cover.
Neil Anderson of Dirty Stop Outs said: “The proliferation of venues in the mid-1990s was jaw dropping by anyone standards. At one point it seemed any vacant building in the city centre was being eyed as a potential nightclub.
But we’re very keen to know which venue has stood the test of time and gets the number one vote. ”
Votes can be cast here.
Voting ends at 12 midnight on Sunday, March 28th.
