    We used to park up behind the sex shop, then walk down for hard house nights.

    I suspect it’s one of these:

    But can’t rule out Thornton’s arcade?!

    Iirc it was near the Grand Arcade at the top of Briggate (was called “Mr Craig’s” in the 80s/early 90s - good for cheesy student nights ). Would occasionally make headlines:

    Student died after taking ecstasy drug

    I have a feeling that might've been a Sundissential North (possibly after Love Parade?!)

    There were sth like 3 Sundissential-related deaths in a year or two, including one up North.

    This does not look anything like my recollections.

    Not that that means anything at all #lol

    That looks completely right. Which leaves me wondering why I've failed to place it when back in Leeds. (Tbf, I seem to now remember getting it right some years back - but the memory has subsequently dwindled, and I think I began confusing it with Thornton's Arcade / the Victoria Quarter).

    And the behind-the-sex-shop car park is obvs still there, but far tidier than it used to be #lol

    Edit: I feel as if I remember people coming towards Uropa from an Arcade. Which, I think, has led me to associate it with the buildings between Thorntons and the VQ. But, tbf, I probably do remember that - but it was probably just that they were utterly mashed up, and we were all lost around that area, and / or walking up and down Leeds arcades somewhat mashed.

    Edit: oh, god. Are those windows the upstairs gallery?! Way way upstairs?! If so, I can almost smell the poppers, just from the facking sight of it.
