Many of the structures were either repurposed or torn down entirely to make way for new builds but here's a list of where the Clubs were/would have sat on the Island.

Adventurers Club - The Edison
BET SoundStage (formerly Neon Armadillo) - Maria and Enzo's
Comedy Warehouse - STK
Fuego by Sosa Cigars - Wine Bar George
Mannequins Dance Palace - Morimoto Asia
Motion (formerly Fireworks Factory restaurant, Wildhorse Saloon) - The BOATHOUSE
Pleasure Island Jazz Company (formerly Merriweather's Market restaurant) - Raglan Road
Rock 'n' Roll Beach Club (formerly XZFR Rockin Rollerdrome) - Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar and the adjacent stage
8 Trax (formerly Videopolis, Cage) - Art of Shaving/Sanuk

I was there once in 1993. It was a bit of a blur. It was my first time at a Florida park location, and I immediately became hooked. 38 visits later and we're annual pass holders and DVC'ers.
That night on Pleasure Island I vaguely remember going into a western-themed club and a disco-style club. It was stupid, but I left there to drive back to my DoubleTree room just outside of Universal Studios about 1:00 AM and a bit tipsy. Don't know how I made it back there with no GPS and my first visit to FL. Oh, and I left two friends stranded there who had to take a taxi back and then proceeded to order $80 of room service. They flew back home before me and never told me about it. Didn't notice until I checked out and saw the bill.

I've got a very clear map... in my brain 😁. I used to work 3rd shift custodial out there, so I had access to everything after hours... Adventures Club, Jazz Club, Rock n Roll Beach Club, Mannequins... you name it. One of my best memories of that time was one night when I was cleaning the Jazz Club. I decided to take a little break and play the piano that was on stage. Just started improvising... the acoustics were perfect. After a while I realized one of the engineers was sitting at one of the tables watching! I freaked out a little and thought I was busted... but he said "no no... keep going man!" I was blown away. I kept playing for a bit and he really was digging my amateur improv. Just a super cool memory from a long time ago. 😊

Lot of credit goes to you. Cleaning up a nightclub and the bathroom areas after pleasure island closes is a dirty job.
