Was at the Watermark at Glenelg - formerly Lennie's, to add another old name to the mix - for my grandmother's 82nd birthday Saturday night and a similar bloke appeared suddenly at the table. Suspect the roses were about as old as him, and the price also roughly the same.

Used to work at Jules (and the Berkerley) back in the day - good times :lol: It's now the Woolshed.


Berkerley was good because they let you dance on the bar ;)

The Big Ticket was good too but as an employee of Mr Polities, if we got caught there it was automatic dismissal.

My favourite place though was upstairs at Joplins. Twas my regular saturday night haunt for quite some time..

Loved Lennies, awesome music! We didn't go there that much though, bit far for us north western suburbians, would cost $60 to get home ;)
So Jules and Berkerley were the same place? I thought they were both open around the same time so assumed they were 2 different places! Wow, I must've been really drunk...! We only went to the Woolshed Friday night just gone - Demonseye rode the bull - funniest thing I've seen for ages hahaha!

No Jules and the Berkerly were two different places, Jules was..well Jules :lol: and the Berkerley was the club right just on the other side of Bank St from Maccas.

HAHA cossi my schedule was strikingly similar! My only difference was PJ's on a thursday night and occasionally Shags. I was at uni working part time so it was a bit easier. Ladies night at PJ's was the place to be :D

Haha, nobody in our uni courses ever scheduled classes on a Friday morning for this exact reason, blokes and chicks. As long as you had a couple of girls with ya, Thursday nights were quality nights for stuff all cost.

I love grapes. With grapes, you always get another chance. You know, if you have a crappy apple or a peach, you’re stuck with that crappy piece of fruit. If you have a crappy grape, no problem-just move on to the next. ‘Grapes: The Fruit of Hope.

Never liked the Planet - refused to go there.

How could I forget Players - a paradise for young chickys with the who's who of footy players working there when it first opened..

I had a pretty good strike rate there ;)

McMahons Tonsley was huge.
Worked at Lennies for the last few years it was open and had a blast there. The Watermark is a modern day tragedy, being a complete physical transformation of St leonard's Inn.
The Circuit was a great place before it was closed down.
Loved Joplins and the Planet but was never a huge fan of Players.

Never really hit Le Rox or The Club (Currie St) but they were both huge too for a while.

The Havelock/Royal double on a Thursday night was also a big night out.
Steve Bradbury and Michael Milton. Aussie Legends.
