Does any one remember this place? It was about where The Cavendish is now. It was not a conventional night club, more like a bar with music and a small dance floor.

I think that you could be be right about Stubbs being where The Cavendish is now situated, so the club I am referring to may have been next door.

hi bizzybee, after the bakery closed roughly 1987/8 it was converted into stubbs wine bar, it had a restaurant in the basement area where the ovens used to be and the wine bar was upstairs at ground floor level. The wine bar then became the Cavendish in 1989. The Pub had a small dance floor in the top area by the toilets and "stage". The Pub used to have music most nights and was once of the first to get a 12 o'clock license, hence why you had to be in by 11pm. It was never a club as you stated just more of a lively Pub. The owner then sold the business in late 2001 to a Chorley based company who renovated it and got rid of the dance floor and made it into a pool room. They in turn sold it to punch taverns in 2003. hope this helps ?

Thanks for the info' merlin but the time I am looking at is the late 60's.
Talking to an old friend about this and she thinks that the name of the place was something like The Bourgeois or Borja.

Its the place i used to go to in 1979/80 and was known as the oxton dance centre. It was a dance centre in the week that did discos at weekends were you could take your own drink.

The club was definitely in Grange Rd West, opposite Cole St. Thanks for your efforts, guys. I am beginning to wonder if it was all in my mind. After all it was the 60's. bananalove

pestering you again bizz, my mam called by today and when i mentioned it might of been called borja or whatever she said yes, only the once she went to it. you went down stairs to it and it was like the cubic size. the cubic being another birkenhead club, smallish i think. she said it was after the little theatre in grange rd west, but before the cavendish. now that is it for sure, i have squeezed every bit of info from her on this. thanks max

Hiya Max, thanks for all your and you mam's trouble. This sounds like the place. Yes, it was only small and I think that you did go down stairs, once inside. Please tell your mam that I am pretty sure, now, that it was called the Borgia.

Talking to my sister , whose clubbing era was the late 60's & early 70's , she remembers a club in Grange Road West called The Compass and thinks it was situated where Hammersound is now - does this ring any bells ?
