Former TJs club, Newport
Former TJs club, Newport
Located on Clarence Place, this is the former TJs, which closed in April 2010 following the death of its founder, John Sicolo, the previous month. Mr Sicolo had been battling to save the club he managed for almost 40 years, after its finances were hit by the recession and the smoking ban.

In its heyday, the club attracted many top bands including Oasis and the Manic Street Preachers. In 1997 it was reputed to be one of the top 50 big nights out in the world.

Before settling on the name TJs, Mr Sicolo had chosen the name El Siecoís Wine Bar. Before that, it was Cedarís Rest restaurant.
