This is a great topic.

I remember - Oh the 80's....

Manhattan:

The Fun House
Giggles - still there on 40th - I remember those "Liquid" lunches very well
Starbucks - Before the coffee!!! Where I met my husband
Bentleys

Queens

(Forest Hills)
The Lemon Tree
Apple Annie’s
Heskels
The Stratton
Eclipse
TJ’s – Metropolitian Ave
Josettes - Howard Beach
There was another club down on Queens Blvd going towards Manhattan/59th Street Bridge across from a really seedy motel, but I can't recall the name - can this be lamour East?

Frangi,

I too remember The Lemon Tree in Forest Hills. You'd have to walk down some stairs because it was subterranean.

There also was a club on Queens Blvd., probably the Rego Park Area that is now a stripper club I think. Had great times there as well (the dance club, not stripper club).

Later on in 90s I discovered Webster Hall.

Yep and as I recall it was a bit cheezy and rather small. Did you every go to Heskels? I think that's how to spell it? I used to have really good times there, it was just a few doors down?

The ARENA Oh My God, yes that's it!!! Thanks, that was a cool place - good music as I recall.

Wow I just remembered a place in Middle Village called "Kickers" had a mechinical bull and all - great Wed night male strippers (hot in the 80"s) oh my flashbacks hurt!

Definitely hung out at Heskels too!

Does anyone remember a place in the way early 90s in the city. It was called Rascals (I think). There was freebie admission for the ladies before 10:00 p.m.

Roller Castle was built on the site of Wal Cliff. I remember going to Wal CLiff too but only the rink. It was already Roller Castle by about 1983 but not sure when Wal Cliff closed for good. I remember kids would go into the closed down Wal Cliff to hang out.

Roller Castle was definelty where I hung out thugh, I went to elementary school right acrross the street at Clara h Carlson and I could walk to the rink. I spent all my quarters in the acrade there!!
