Memories of Sherrys.

Old Sherrys advertising flyer.

It was the talk around town, and anybody who was around at the time went. I first met Dave Berry the singer there. I remember two dancing girls who worked there, one called Gina, and the other called Liz.

I also remember it backed onto an arcade, where I also got my first tattoo. The guy that owned Sherry’s also owned the arcade ( think name Mike ? ). After clubbing all over Britain in the 1970’s Sherrys was the best ever.

I haven’t lived in Brighton for 40 +yrs now and am sad it no longer exists. But the memories always will.

  • During the war Sherry’s had a bit of a reputation and was very popular with the Canadian soldiers base in the town, particularly with the girls also.

  • Sherry’s used to back onto the Crystal Rooms in West Street. Certainly in the 60s it had rifle and archery ranges, and loads of penny slot machines (including one that dispensed Players Weights to me with a 90% success rate). Pretty sure it had a bingo there too.

  • I remember Sherrys very well, it’s been almost 50 years since I have been to England. I arrived in 1974 from Canada and Sherrys was the first disco I had ever been to. Soooo much fun, met a lot of nice people there mostly men, one I remember very well named Mike Laffan. I’m sure Sherrys is missed by many people, times were so much simpler then. I miss those times there very much.
