Great Report

I just want to say what an excellent set of pics etc you got. Im from portsmouth and pretty much used to live in that club when it was open! It looked pretty much the same as it does in your pics when it was open but with people in it! Everytime i drive by it i want to go in there and explore! Did you go through the door in the far corner, on the stairs side in time? i always used to try and go in there but was always dragged out! I think they used to serve food in there a long time ago because it had diner written above it! ive always wondered what was in there really though! i would of loved to go in there with you, maybe miss out the casino bit because thats abit too freaky for me! Once again, what a quailty post!

p.s. the toaster is there because at the end of the night they would hand out toast, and the two loo thing, theres quite a few clubs that have them. girls for some reason have a strange obsession of going in the same cubical as each other :S ive been told by my mate its because theres always a que for the toilet so if more than one goes in there they dont have to wait.

Envy always is a smaller club than Time usually for the over 21's on a normal evening or 25's when Time is open for a over 21's evening if that makes sense well thats what its been like in the ones i have been to. Looks like a good explore though.

Thanks everyone for the kind words on the report and photos.

Just so that it's clear, the entire complex has been sealed tight now. Plus when I went to check it out again the only potential access was being guarded by an unmarked police car. I'm guessing the junkie situation got pretty bad there, hence it getting sealed.

A great report!! - It's a shame you didnt get any shots of the casino itself (tables etc) but given the circumstances I don't blame you for doing a runner. May be worth waiting a bit and taking 'a gamble' to get some more photos (no pun intended!!) when the heat has died down....

Wow that was an awesome report! When I saw that last picture, I was thinking exactly what you wrote! Couldn't believe it when I read there was a junkie there as well!! Good job you made it out A-ok, glad to hear it's been sealed to stop any more druggie activity too.

These are awesome photos...

And you are right about the 4 clubs... in fact it was more likely 5 clubs as Lush & Bliss we're seperate also.

Time
Envy
Lush & Bliss
Joannas

+ Grosvenor casino

This site has recently been purchased by Harry Redknapp and pals to turn into flats... so for anyone wanting to capture the remaining areas this may be your last chance.

I'[m surprised that the carbonaters and Co2 Bottles are still there!!!!! The Junkies obviosuly havnt realised that they are worth quite a bit. Our Co2 comes from GSK and there was a few old bits and bobs in the cellar and we cashed them back in for a bit of money!!!!
