Nightclub 1987

Let’s go out tonight ok? The seven videos in the playlist above show pretty much exactly what the clubs I went to in 1987 were like. This club happened to be in San Diego California but it really doesn’t matter. The music, hair, clothes and dance style were true to the NY area too. Enjoy!

“Stratus Dance Club was the premier alcohol-free young adult nightclub in Southern California from 1978 to 1987. Located in Casa de Oro – the foothills of Mt. Helix , Stratus catered to high-school and college students from San Diego County to as far north as Los Angeles.” –
