Haven't got a clue Dave. It was usually dark outside and even darker in Fanny's plus by the time I got there I didn't even know my own name never mind clocking the decor. :blink: I reckon I knew you at the time? Your name rings a bell! My brother Andy (Drew) Paul Salisbury (RIP), Al Jowet, Vicky Parsons, Adrian (Ady). Other clubs - Tramps, Genevive, Baileys, Josephines, Crazy Daisy. There was another club, no idea of it's name now in a residential area of Netheredge ...Any of this ring any bells???

Cheers

Chris

There was a club down towards the bottom of Nether Edge Road - near the Byron pub - called Turn Ups.

Is that the one? It closed in the late seventies I think and the site was redeveloped as flats.

I remember it well. Can you remember when an episode of Tiswas was shot there in the early 80s?

As a coach driver in the 80`s I have very fond memories of that aptly named venue.

Went once, maybe twice in the late '80s with my girlfriend of the day, sister & boyfriend and my parents.

My Dad was up on the dance floor jiving with some girl to Time Warp. Crazy alcohol fueled evening.

Hi everyone I'm new to this site and may I say loving it as it brings back so many memories of living in Sheffield. Fanny's nightclub at Owler Bar was originally called Five Ways motel and night club. I know as I worked there when it was Five Ways and then when it changed to Fanny's. I was there up until 1987. The owners also had a club in Nether Edge called Turn Ups at which I also worked and that was originally Nether Edge Hall. Not sure what year it closed down and I believe is now flats.

I was the Manager at Fiveways from about April to November 1976. The owners were Les and Betty Vickers. Had some great nights, thoroughly enjoyed my time there. DJS were Stuart Burnham and Wayne Chadwick. What happened to Les and Betty.?

Does anyone remember a bar called Mr Kites next to Devonshire Green? I think it closed in the early 90's.

Someone told me that it was owned by a son or grandson of one of the notorious Moonie brothers, who were 1930s Sheffield gangsters.

Anyone else heard if this is true and where/who any current family are?

Well it was owned at one time by Brian Mooney - this was back in the late 70's early 80's - what relation he was to the infamous Mooney gang I don't know - I heard he passed away about 6 years ago
