    I remember Nitro, I think it is now a "throw back" club. JL Seagull's still stands, I think - I remember the "lighthouse" it had

    As well as upside-down kamakazi's. It really was a fun bar.

    The Side Door on Telegraph, next to the giant whipped cream cans, was where I had my first date with my now husband.

    It was indeed. It was our hangout every Wednesday and Friday for a year or more. Also, I now know why folks say, "seems like just yesterday".

    OMG, I was at that concert. Remember Florian handing his "pocket calculator" controller into the crowd.

    Oh yeah...Uncle Sams too.
    Did I used to go and see Cheap Trick in the mid-70s (1975-1976) at the Red Carpet, or did I just dream that? Too many Singapore Slings, perhaps? LOL

    The Aorta? Heck, I was a regular! Harvey "Motown" Turner played the most spectacular dance music...rock, Motown, you name it......if it was danceable, it got played. Harvey also had a side biz that did security for Harpos. He and I are still in touch via Facebook. Great times!

    Good memories for sure. Just wasn't the same when they expanded and when they reopened on Grosbeck.

    Clearly my adolescence came too late. Best I came by was The Shelter/St. Andrew's, Bookie's (on McNichols, but only once, alas), and The Warehouse.

    Then again, I still like a lot of the music I was listening to back when.

    So far, these are all local hangouts that some knew and some didn't. But were there any really FAMOUS clubs that people elsewhere knew? Maybe some that made TV shows or movies?

    Cheeks, at the old Sydney Hill Health Club on 8 Mile East of Schaefer. Around 1972 or 1973. Before my time but it was there.
