I used to go to Ray's Place with my sister back in the 60's - took us ages to get there by bus from Stalybridge, but such was our devotion to the place! I seem to remember a casino downstairs and the disco upstairs where Ralph Elphinstone was the DJ.
When I was a student in Manchester, it hosted student nights and to get a late licence, they served free burger and chips. I worked there cooking those dammed burger and chips !!!!, BIG L was the DJ and I'm sure many people on this amazing site will have spent a Thursday evening there.Keep up the good work, amazing legacy
