Cheers for clearing that up, Gee Gee's was a great wee club (or dancing as it was back then), now some pishy Irish theme bar :roll:

Gigi's.

It's not so much that it's a name change : the original building occupied by Gigi's was demolished.

It was obviously too sophisticated to survive.
"I before E, except after C" works in most cases but there are exceptions.

Was it really ?

I can remember walking from pavement & up the stairs into Gee Gee's (the dancing), I'm convinced that's where Waxy's now is, although I stand to be corrected

Cheers :wink:

Waxy O'Connor's (or whatever) is where Gigi's was. It's just a new build.

So stand corrected. Sort of. :-)

Turns out that is correct, Daddy Warbucks was in fact after Gee Gee's (not sure which year the fire destroyed part of the building)
