York as they saw it … Roxy 1990

While looking for information regarding the shop at 25 Bootham, which of course at one time had the Roxy nightclub on the floors above it, I came across the following information, from the guidebook Birnbaum’s Great Britain, 1990:

NIGHTCLUBS AND NIGHTLIFE: York is not a night town. If you crave action in the wee hours, your best bet is to drive to Leeds

It does concede: ‘However, York has a few discos worth visiting’, and mentions the available nightlife, which sounds rather sedate –

Roxy nightclub, 25 Bootham Rd., offers dinner and dancing in a Georgian house Mondays through Saturdays from 10pm

They make it sound like Mr Darcy was there …

Dinner? At the Roxy?
