The opening of Club Fiesta represented the start of an era like no other in Sheffield's recent history.
It was boom time in the post-war city with confidence at an all-time high. The £500,000, purpose-built venue – which opened in the summer of 1970 - was the biggest nightclub in Europe and that sure of its abilities it even held a date open for Elvis.
The glitzy venue allowed audiences to get up close and personal with massive American stars like Stevie Wonder, the Beach Boys, the Jacksons and Four Tops.
If you didn't like cabaret there was the likes of Josephine's, Top Rank, Penny Farthing and Hofbrauhaus if you liked things a little more mainstream, the Buccaneer for the rockers and you'd got The Limit if punk was your bag.
The sheer number and variety of venues on offer in 1970s Sheffield dwarfs anything we have today: cabaret clubs, discotheques, pubs, restaurants, Working Men's Clubs, out-of-town nightclubs, live music venues and even a 24 hour Wimpy.
