Hi there. Here's a 1970's picture of the Courtyard in the Stonehouse.

Brilliant! What is the story behind this - how did it come to exist?

 

Maybe it should be recreated somewhere as part of the new redeveloped Sheffield, along with other lost gems and follies.

I remember going in there for the first time in the late 80's and thought i'd gone back out side.:suspect:

I remember the lasers in there. I`d never seen lasers before and when that white smoke stuff came out of the walls and the lasers started firing off... Excellent stuff!

 

That was about 1980 if I remember rightly.

I remember there being a long crack in the paintwork all along the starry night sky ceiling, sort of ruined the effect a bit.

It was all a facade and was located where Waterstone's is now in Orchard Square. You could get in at the back of the Stonehouse by going down a road which was approx next to where Museum is (off the road where the bookies is). There was also a hairdressers just inside the entrance which is next to the bearded bloke in white on the left. Disappointingly, it was just a store room upstairs for crisps & glasses etc.

thanks so much for posting the picture. It was a great place to go in those days and brought back some very happy memories.

And after a few drinks, who cared about the line on the ceiling anyway?

Just how I remember it it, but not full of young men in suits :P It'd be the late 70's early 80's when I frequented the Stonehouse and it used to be packed in that courtyard :)

 

Did guys have to wear a jacket & tie to get in clubs back then?
