Cliff Road Plymouth – Site of Mr Harry’s

Via Flickr:
This is the site of the infamous Mr. Harry’s night club on Cliff Road, West Hoe, Plymouth.

Mr Harry’s club was a far more openly gay nightclub than the city had seen before and provided a safe space, particularly for groups of women only groups – both gay or straight.  “Harry looked after us,” said one woman and Mr Harry himself was a bold larger than life character.  The club became a place mostly concerned with fun of all kinds.  “It could become quite raunchy later in the night” said one former reveler, “But you always felt at home there.”

If you have any recollections of nights at Mr. Harry’s or have any photographs we would love to hear from you.
