Cocoon as in the actual club in Frankfurt was visually stunning. My main memory was crossing the empty dance floor from the restaurant, before the club was open for the night, but it was club dark with a little lighting and ambient music playing on that system. Could have gone home happy then

yeah it might have been, not good to hear it’s been ripped down..Used to have some big nights, judgement sunday’s on a bank holiday springs to mind ..

Sadly the majority of the clubs I used to go to locally or in the uk are now shut.

Arches, went religiously every month for Colours with the likes of lawler, digweed ,Dave seamen, nick warren to name a few..

Sub club - closed just now due to covid but hopefully will open again - Graeme Parks 5 hour set at Easter last year is up there with one of my favourite sets of all time ??

Also had some quality nights at the sugar shack in middlesbrough and shindig at Foundation Newcastle..

In Ibiza, Amnesia & Destino are now my favourite to go to venues but nothing comes close to the open air terrace at Space for me..Sunday’s at Space and then some carry on parties will always be cherished.

Mad,Messy and an atmosphere like no other ???

You’re lucky to of been around for shindig @ foundation meant to of been some night! I started going to Shindig when it moved to Digital every Sat and then to the warehouse once every couple months both were unbelieavble. It’s back at Digital now though every so often and just not the same....

Nothing is though:cry:

that Hoults Yard was a proper sweatbox! not surprising the mishaps that occurred there unfortunately tbh.. could hardly breath it got that chocka

I used to go down quite a few times when my mum stayed in Newcastle with work..Typical Saturday was going to St. james’s Park, quick change, then hit the quayside and off to foundation.. It was a sweat box but at least you get some kind of breather up stairs and talk the usual chemical nonsense to someone lol...Can mind vaguely quality sets by Scot Bradford, Scooby , Rampling, Lawler, Sister Bliss and Lisa Loud which i’m convinced during her set some firework or rocket went from one end to the other on fireworks night -could well have been the biscuits mind ?

Row 14 in Barcelona where they had the original Elrow was amazing about 10 years ago. Proper raw, underground (but outdoor if that makes sense) vibe, nothing like their parties these days. Full of hardcore Spanish nutters on a Sunday morning

Turnmills London is my all time favourite UK venue, and Pacha my fave in Ibiza.

Trouw in Amsterdam was pretty amazing.

Barbarellas in Croatia is pretty special when the sun is coming up.

Yeah Sankeys was a solid gaff, it was bound to go though for years we were saying I wonder how long it lasts as some very nice housing just adjacent to the street with hefty price tags.. those kind of people don't want clubbers roaming around after dark
