[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Dubliners have been left shocked after the iconic Club 92 in Leopardstown announced it will be shutting its doors after 30 years in business.

The popular nightclub hotspot said they will be closing due to “circumstances beyond our control.”

In a Facebook post they said: “Due to circumstances beyond our control, with the redevelopment of Leopardstown Racecourse, Club 92 will sadly cease trading at the end of 2018.

“To all of our amazing customers who danced, partied, fell in love here, over the past 30 years, there are only 7 weeks left to remember and celebrate old times in The Club of Love, with our Final Goodbye Night on NYE, December 31st.”

Gutted punters have been reminiscing about the good times they had in the club.

Graham Hill recalled: “I lapped that dance floor like it was an Olympic sport looking for a shift…sometimes to the point of sobering up. On the nights that you weren’t sober leaving those dogs and slaw were reward enough and Insomnia ringing in my ears.”

Brian O’Doherty said: “I remember climbing in through the toilet window in 1980, when the bouncers wouldn’t let us in, after lots of pints in the Lep Inn.”

Sharon Wynne remembered: “So many good nights there, back in 1983 when we thought Malibu and pineapple was the epitome of sophistication! Remember us seriously cracking up, when I refused some lad a slow dance and he asked me who the hell did I think I was, Roberta Flack?”

Pat O’Brien said: “I went when it was blinkers then club ‘92. You got a curry and chips with your ticket.”

Kerri-ann O’Grady said her parents met at the Club of Love. She said: “My parents met here, married 29 years this year!”
