A number of people posted comments on our previous post on Sloopy’s back in October. One was, Mike Wright who installed its sound system and was a DJ in the club. According to Mike the club held up to 1500 people. Mike also said, “Sloopy’s started in D’Olier Street beside the Gas Co. Sloopy’s was opened in D’Olier St. by Michael Ryan & Michael Murphy in 1969 to 1971, and moved to Fleet St. in 71/72.”
Scans above are from various mags through 1970 to 1980. The top one is from New Spotlight, August 1971. Interesting set of judges for that Miss Sloopy competition in 1977!
