I know it's gone now but does anyone remember Vico's just off Shaftesbury Avenue beside where Irene and Nan's is now. When you got out of the limelight etc on a Saturday night about 1am if you were still up for drinking Vico's was the place. A bar on the ground floor that only served beer or red bull and Vodka and slices of Pizza,and three floors of music above with three different styles. I think it was open until about four in the morning and more times than not it was easy to get in. Have no idea why it shut as the music was great and it even had film nights downstairs. It was open most of the night (probably illegally at the time) but never had any eeijits in it (due to good bouncers who could see them coming a mile off). If you have any memories of this place please post a review or was it all a figment of my drunken imagination???

I frequented Vico's a lot around 1999 to 2001,all the comments above I would agree with totally.The Techno on the third floor was my usual spot but it was great to be able to go to the other levels for a different buzz.My most memorable night was seeing Marco Carola play the Techno room.Gone but not forgotten!!

I liked the acid jazz band and the free pizza downstairs. This place had a great vibe with four floors of cutting edge music, and a decent friendly crowd. I have very fond memories, pity it's gone!

Bring back Vicos - misspent a good chunk of my youth in there!! Much better than the pathetic "style" bars which are everywhere now...

it got shut down after the police got tired of their complete disregard to licensing laws by selling alcohol to 3 in the morning. shame as it was my favorite venue in belfast. such a chilled relaxed crowd
