  1. A stunning grade two listed gem decaying right on the high street. Featuring the stunning architecture of Alfred Waterhouse who also designed Strangeways prison the Manchester town hall. The main building has been used for many different purposes over the years as well as Prudential themselves. And the basement club was once a Berni inns restaurant (Cafe Monico) a chain that served a post-war British public such delight's as sherry schooners steak and chips and black forest gateau as well as becoming a dance club in the 90's. We had a wonderful two hours in this grade two listed time capsule. Hope you guys enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed the explore. Thanks for any feedback The Urban Collective We Film It...

  3. Abandoned a couple of years ago, part of a larger complex of buildings D9 Nightclub in Leicester still has working lights and heating. This wasn't a usual Saturday night out for Spider Monkey and I, and was lots of fun! There was even a bit of stock left in the cellar, and beer connected to the bar pumps - but after a couple of years would only be enjoyed by those who are partial to a pint or two of vinegar! 1.

  4. The History Caesars started life as the first purpose built Ballroom in England opening in 1928 as 'The Locarno Ballroom'. It was one of the premiere London nightspots of the time, with Glenn Miller, Laurel & Hardy, Audrey Hepburn, and Charlie Chaplin among the top names to grace its stage. How it looked back then Streatham Megabowl sits to the right nowadays In 1969 it became the 'Cat’s Whiskers Club' with a revolving stage where bands such as The Rolling Stones, The Small Faces & Rod Stewart performed. Miss World and Come Dancing (now Strictly) started their legacies there and it became a regular haunt for people in the London underworld such as The Krays. It went on to become 'The Studio' in 1984, 'The Ritzy' in 1990 and eventually 'Ceasars Night Club' in 1995 owned by Fred Batt. The new owner started the first lap dancing club for women in there, it also became a boxing venue and held the first ever pro female boxing match. In recent years cage fighting took place in there and since it's closure there are rumours that illegal boxing matches went on there. Fred Batt with the dancers It made several TV appearances, most notably in Guy Ritchie's movie Snatch for Brad Pitt's boxing scenes. Most Haunted filmed there in 2009 where they attempted to investigate the ghost of Ruth Ellis, the last female to be hung in the UK who is said to have worked in the club in 1948. The episode can be viewed here > and although it's a load of nonsense there is some half decent footage of what the club looked like in it's former glory right at the beginning.In 2010 the club ran into financial difficulties and had to close it's doors for the last time. It was bought by developers who failed to do anything with it and was sold on again in the last 12 months to commercial property developers London Square along with the Megabowl next door. The existing buildings are to be demolished except for the historic facade of the Megabowl and the new site will include 243 new homes, children’s play space, retail space on ground level, plus a community and theatre space. Demolition is fully under way now. The Explore I've been trying to access this place for the last year or so, the closest I got was inside the roof but there was no way inside the building from there. Every other access point was locked up and I had pretty much given up until I heard that the demolition team had turned up. I made a trip with extreme_ironing and we found a way in but unfortunately we were a little too late as much of the interior had been ripped to shreds already, gutted (literally). Anyhow it was still great to see the inside of the place and there was enough of it left to imagine what it would have been like. The ballroom is enormous and with it being in pitch darkness it was difficult to photograph well, especially with the batteries dying in my torch. Anyway I did what I could and hopefully enough for you to imagine the place before it is gone forever. The Roman murals covering the walls would've been enough to make even Del Boy blush, they were tacky as hell but kind of cool. Anyway onto my pics, hope you enjoy Arty shot of the night The Stage Strippers billboard Stripper poster, one for the ladies Backstage Bits of the PA system amongst rubble on the dancefloor Extremely grainy shot of the stage from the balcony The sorry state of affairs, if only we'd got there 2 weeks earlier....this gives you an idea how big the place is at least Plaster decorations ripped off the walls Stairs leading up to the balcony, most rooms up there appeared to have been stripped already with asbestos removed Looking towards the balcony from the top of the stairs One of the countless murals dotted around The bar Looking across from one balcony to another with large leather seating downstairs Cage fighting poster Hand written bubbly menu, perhaps from an illegal boxing match....? More murals Carpets with Caesars logo Balconies Compliments slips in one of the offices that hadn't been stripped yet but were trashed Found this sign amongst the rubble 'Smile you're going on stage' Thanks for looking at some of my crappest photos yet, you can see more shots from Caesars on their still functioning website here http://www.darkforce.com/caesars/ RIP Caesars
  5. Another bar destroyed by the ongoing feuds & politics engaged in by the big clubs on Ibiza. Looks like it re-opened 2004 http://www.ibiza-spotlight.com/night/reviews/2004/morgana_170704_i.htm blurb Morgana is a mix of chill-out gardens, VIP terraces and indoor dance club. Lavishly decorated both inside and out in Arabian style complete with comfy sofas under Moroccan tents, wrought iron furniture, lanterns and elaborate paving, no expense has been spared in creating the ultimate night time venue. I think it closed 2005 'cause I can't find anything on it after that & I visited in 2014. Any way enjoy the decor.........

  6. The Plymouth Town Mission was established in 1836 to extend the Gospel to poor and destitute people in Plymouth. In 1876 they extended their mission to include the Crossline telephone counselling service to those in need. Plymouth Brethren Bethesda Mission 1898 & 1901 Mission Classroom Bethesda: House to house visitation for instruction in spiritual truth, circulation of scriptures and tracts, to hold mission and cottage services, relief of the poor and sick, occaisional teas for poor persons,Evangelical and unsectarian. The Gaumont Palace in Union Street, Plymouth, was opened in 1931. The building's fluted columns and tiled foyer immediately attracted attention whilst inside the auditorium a mighty Compton organ had been installed at a cost of over £6,000. Mr Leslie James entertained the audiences on this during the intervals that week. The walls of the cinema had been covered by acoustic felt and fabric to prevent echo. Dressing rooms had also been provided. Designed by Mr W H Watkins and built by Messrs McLaughlin Harvey Ltd of Highbury Grove, London N5, the main structure was formed of a new material named Clinco-Compo which was manufactured at Pomphlett, Plymstock. This was faced with red brick from Reading, Berkshire. Seating for 2,252 people had been provided by Messrs W W Turner Company of King's Heath, Birmingham. Heating was by warm air ducts and even the lighting was hidden behind grills on the walls. The Gaumont's first manager and licensee was Mr R E Eady and the advertised prices were: front circle 2s; back circle 1/6d; front stalls 7d; back stalls 1s. There were continuous performances from 2 until 10.30pm. Mr Maurice Leacey was the Chief Projectionist. Under him, in 1939, were four projectionists, Mr R Thomas (2nd), Mr C Charters (3rd), Mr C Peel (4th) and Mr E West (5th). The projection suite consisted of six rooms. Crompton-Parkinson generators supplied Hall and Connelly type R.4 H.I. arc lamps, which were installed with Gaumont R/S Eclipse projectors. On either side of the projectors were a Premier 75 amp spotlight and a slide lantern. The Duosonic Sound was provided by two 200 watt main amplifiers and two 10 watt input amplifiers, with a change-over switch. The stage battens and floats and the proscenium arch lighting were all three-colour. These were all controlled by a dimmer switch with remote control conveniently located in the projection room. The screen curtains were also controlled from there but the house tabs were operated by hand from the prompt side of the stage. The Millennium complex was closed in 2004 and was owned by Luminar Leisure group .
  7. The iconic 'Sol Viva' in Bury is set for demolition :/ I had many a fun night in there as a 14 year old, treading the sticky carpets and throwing up after too many shots. Since it closed I've wanted to get in there; looks like I'll be too late as I won't be in my home town for a while. Looks like plans start on bank holiday Monday, but it's expected to take 17 weeks, so there maybe a short time to get them pics! I'd love to see old Sol before it's gone. If you're round that way, ave a look!!!! http://www.burytimes.co.uk/news/10628894.Sol_Viva_nightclub_set_to_be_demolished/
