The sheer scale and variety of party opportunities on offer in 1970s Chesterfield totally dwarfs the Chez Vegas of today.

Forget the stereotypical image of strikes and misinformed fashion; this was the era of blockbuster films, the dawn of mass-market foreign package tour holidays and incredible British music (with a few future chart-toppers having an early stop off in the town in 1979, when one venue was giving Sheffield and Manchester a run for its money).

Chesterfield offered a palatial cabaret club that wouldn't have looked out of place on the Vegas Strip, nightclubs, pubs, bars, wine bars, Working Men's Clubs, a shiny new Berni Inn, hotels and cinemas.

Or you could always make your own house party entertainment armed only with a trusty keg of Watney's Party Seven. Sounds could be purchased from the likes of Some Kinda Mushroom, Startrax and Hudsons.

The YMCA, youth clubs and school discos were there to give the under 18s a bit of pre-match training and the likes of the Terminus, Highfieldand other suburban pubs had their own private rooms for your coming of age celebration.

The Dirty Stop Out's Guide to 1970s Chesterfield is a reminder of the venues that have been lost and the pubs like the Portland and Market that are still popular today. 

This guide book will be the perfect gift for anyone that remembers Chesterfield in this amazing era.
