People often reminisce about about nights at The Plaza and these photos remind us just how fun this legendary Lafayette nightclub was.

The Plaza was a multi level night club located at 4509 Johnston St that originally opened in the mid 90s. It was a nighttime hotspot through the turn of the century and closed and re-opened a few times through 2010.

The original layout of the spacious venue boasted a huge sound system and the high ceilings made for an amazing light show. There were multiple levels in the club, so it was pretty common to be partying with nearly 2000 people on any given Saturday night.

In addition to weekly club nights, The Plaza also played host to numerous live shows, including the legendary Prince after-party that people still talk about to this day.

The days of the "mega nightclub" are all but over, and the only venues that can even come close to the Plaza's capacity would be the old Lee Furniture building (formerly Karma, currently Delta Grand 2) or NiteTown, but its still good to see these photos and wish we were able to party like this just one more time.

Did you go to The Plaza back in the day? What do you miss most about it?
