THE CRAZY DAISY

 

 

LOCATION

post-1-1171358202.jpg

High Street - Sheffield (red marks where the entrance used to be)

 

STAFF

 

DJ - Martin Manterfield (unfortunately he passed away)

 

You had to go downstairs to the below street level late night bar. It was probably most famous for it being the venue that Phil Oakey from the Human League met Suzanne and Joanne and signed them up for the band !

 

PICS

I have vague memories of Crazy Daizy, from around 1977/78.  It was still all Roxy Music and Bowie the few times I went.  Maybe punk & reggae were different nights.  My main memory is the arched ceiling and alcoves.

I went in at lunchtime a couple of times in 1983, by which time it was The Geisha Bar.

Was it really ever called the Lowenbrau?  I thought that was the later name of the Hofbrauhaus on Arundel Gate - which is the one that had lunchtime strippers in the late 70s.  Later to become Berlins.

What was the name of the small bar on the corner of Arundel Gate and Furnival Gate, around the early 90s?  Tucked away behind all the concrete stairs and steel barriers, keeping people off the dual carriageway / underpass / roundabout?
