Afrique Club, Albion Street

Probably location of Afrique Club, Albion Street. (c) flexioffices.

The Afrique Club was a nightclub and after-hours, Sunday drinking establishment, sometimes frequented by Alex Higgins [1].  It was "past the alleyway behind the Britons Protection (presumably Trumpet Street), up some stairs on the way to the Hacienda on the opposite corner, facing the back end of Central Station", according to 'codger' [1].  This puts it probably above the now closed Aqua Bar or the larger Saloni salon at Albion House.
