These were the days before the beating heart of Norwich nightlife drifted to Prince of Wales Road and Riverside.
Rick's Place in Anglia Square offered clubbers a place to let their hair down with themed events and drinks deals galore.
Operating from the 1980s until the early noughties, Rick's Place had previously been known as Scamps which opened in the summer of 1973.
The venue was named as a nod to Humphrey Bogart’s bar in the film Casablanca and punters could expect more than your run of the mill nightclub experience at Rick's Place.
Radio Broadland hosted parties there and local bands had their chance to step into the spotlight.
