Where is the Jungle Room? I'm a big fan of jungle.
To the left of Monty's where Bar Vic used to be.
Know it all.

About ten years ago there was a dance club where Lyles Place is on Yates.
It was the best club! Best 80s nights on wednesdays in early-mid 90s. Only place which played heavier music back then..
They had the best lights and loudest sound in the city too! but they moved to Evolution and the vibe was never the same!

What was the name of the club under Swan's Hotel. It was a jazz club for awhile. i used to go there a fair bit but can't think of the name. It is kind of bizarre to think that there is an abandoned club under that place today.
G-Man, as Galvanized said it was Al Capones for awhile, I believe it also used to be called Electric Avenue and Milleniums and Diablos at various incarnations. Swans had it for lease hoping to find a good operator for the last couple of years, during which time they rented it out as event space to people wanting to have parties down there. Over the last month Swans has renovated it and begining tomorrow, they are opening it as The Marquee Room, a conference event space catered through them. It still has all the original lighting and the sound system along with the black slate floors and marble bar. The new renovations restore it back down to its vaguely art-deco bones.

It was spelled Rumors. and yes, it was a great club.... I worked there 1989-1990 as a doorman....
But the best place ever, that I remember, would be Rumours, the jolly old gay bar that is now Hush. During the height of the rave scene you could see real live tranny's and real live gay people making out in the booths. It was a sight to behold. I actually met my boyfriend there, now that I am remembering...

In that case it's a safe bet that we've met at least once....
I used to work at the door too, but in the 90's!

Well, that was probably me.
