    Been sitting there waiting for the ball for a while. No loss architecturally but will miss the old Casbah night club. Had a few nights there and DJed up in the bar bit for a while.

    Casbah was the first proper date @Rincewind took me on I believe ;)
    His mate "ho-downed" me into one of the pillars
    Shame we never managed the roof :(

    You reckon it's still worth a try?

    I have been here before, there is a report on my blog. Although access changes regularly at all locations the original way in to here was creative to say the least!

    It was considered a bit of a holy grail amongst Sheffield explorers due to the difficulty.

    If you do manage to gain access before its demolition be aware of an alarm activated by entering the lobby area. I suggest heading upwards first and doing the lobby last as reinforcements arrive promptly ;-).

    I tried it out and unfortunately there was no way into the hotel :(

    From what I can tell there is no way in now.

    They are starting to demo this now. Scaff is going up around the sides. In fact this may make the roof access a bit easier.
