The Water Garden stank


Steve remembers The during the late 1980s. This was a club that was located in the same building that is now, on Livery Street. Two older gay men, and his partner Lionel ran it and also lived above the club with their pet dogs. “They were like something out of Little Britain, it was absolutely amazing.” Steve recalls looking under a table on the balcony of the club and seeing a water bowl that belonged to one of the dogs. He recalls that there were three bars and the middle one was called The Water Garden. “There was water sliding down the walls…there was algae and everything….it stank! They used to play a gay Bingo…’Gingo’…to a packed dance floor….the dance floor was not very big.”
