In the history of dance music, one thing cannot be denied, a venue can be equally as important as the music and over the years we have seen some of the UK’s most legendary rave and club venues close down. In many cases, this left a huge hole in the hearts of all the ravers and clubbers who frequented these churches of dance throughout the 90’s and beyond, often never to be replaced.

In this roundup Retroheadz take a look at some of the most iconic rave and club venues that are sadly no longer with us but for those that went to them probably have some amazing, yet hazy memories of the best rave and club venues they ever went to in the UK. Which ones did you get the chance to party at?

Set in the surrounding of an old opera house Dance Academy was a mecca for ravers across the South West of England and beyond. Famously hosting nights such as Eyecon and Legends of the Dark Black it boasted a massive sound system as well as a maze of passageways that would often cause confusion in the early hours of the morning. The club opened in 1997 in quickly started attracting top DJs, from Sasha to Roni Size. Unfortunately, it closed its doors in 2006 after police reportedly found drugs on the premises. The iconic building has been left to rot ever since despite numerous attempts to save it.
