    She remembered instantly. Qui-Qui's. She was a nursing student at the Heath, and a lot of them hung out there.

    Hi I'm a local artist creating a unique art series of Cardiff pubs - past & present. Please take a look at my site for the ones I have done so far; I'm looking for stories and memories for an article I hope to do soon with a local journalist. www.art4u.wales I thank you.

    Those were the days - I remember just when the police raided on horse back and Barry boys rammed doors with an escort van! Best place ever

    Used lots of mirrors over the years and the fire exit was always helpful!

    I do. I'd have thought there was online info somewhere, it was quite popular :)

    It ran for years, so we remember (and sometimes don't remember) it well. It was the Loop before they claimed to do it out as the Emporium.

    There used to be loads of stuff posted online in the "early days" of the internet, but most of the clubbing sites that had content are all gone!

    Have been doing a lot of Googling and only very minimal returns ...

    Top Rank was 'Ritzys' before it became 'Studio'.
    I worked at Studio and Panama Joes (Pj's).

    I briefly went out with a girl that worked behind the bar at Coco Savannahs in the late 80s.

    Used to love that place.
    Also Fat Sams and the Lodge in Sophia Gardens.
