We decided to look back through The News archives to see if we could find some of the old drinking establishments that are sadly no-longer part of the city having closed down over the years.
Hopefully this gallery might be able to spark some fond memories of good times from down the years!
Have a look through all 40 and let us know how many you can remember.
