Remember Casanovas and Rooftop Gardens?

Here’s footage filmed at the popular twin Wakefield nightclubs back in the 1980s.

The infamous Rooftop Gardens and Casanovas was a pull for thousands of revellers throughout the 1980s – with many travelling from all over the north of England.

Football fans travelling to watch Leeds United would stop off for a night out and there was no shortage of stag parties flocking to the city for a knees-up.

Famed for its 10p a pint night, its laser show and its legendary rooftop garden, the night spot often saw visits from big named DJs.

And linked club Casanovas was a popular haunt, especially on teen scene night when up and coming acts would often play.

And the nightspot was a venue for The Hitman and Her – a television show hosted by Pete Waterman and Michaela Strachan was a late night clubbing show shown in the early hours of Sunday mornings.

Take a look back to the golden era - you might even spot yourself on the dance floor!
