Burgers, beers and bopping the night away. It didn’t matter which you wanted to enjoy in Hartlepool and East Durham. There was something for all tastes 32 years ago.
So get your glad rags on, search through our photos and nostalgic adverts and join our trip down Memory Lane.
And if any of these venues bring back fond memories, email [email protected] and tell us more.
1. Ned Kelly's
Beer in the jug and wine by the bottle at this newest addition on the scene. Ned Kelly's was described as 'an authentic 19th century saloon' .
You'd find it inside the shopping centre in the spot where the Bamboo Terrace chinese restaurant used to be based.
Blondes wine bar in Church Square had special party nights and T-shirt giveaways in the summer of 1987. It also had a Mr 501 competition. Anyone remember who won? Email [email protected]
Champs in Church Street won awards for its design. It also had lots of facilities including a ladies gym and men's boxing gym as well as a wine bar. Here is one advert from July 1987 for a cabaret night. Who remembers nights like these?
4. Cellar Bar
Live entertainment and discos were a feature of this Whitby Street favourite. And when we spotlighted this venue on social media two years ago, 20,000 Mail followers took an interest in this photo. Some of them also remembered the slippy floor tiles.
