Nightingale Thorp Street
February 1981 to February 1994
A two storey building on Thorp Street at the side of the Hippodrome Theatre, previously the Birmingham Anglers Club. The entrance was simply a door on the street with a small viewing hatch. You walked down a short corridor and entered a spacious indoor courtyard area with a bar called the Pemberton Arms, after Derek Pemberton, the man who had put up the money for its first incarnation at Camp Hill. To the right was a small dining area and in front of you a doorway led to the main dance area. Upstairs above the entrance was a members' lounge. The club also had several rooms which they allowed groups such as Friend, Switchboard and HIV charities such as AIDSline West Midlands to use.
