Seventy clubs

There were many good clubs in London in the 1970s, and it took hours to crawl after dinner. One of the most popular clubs in London at the turn of the decade was Sombrero High Street in Pennington, known to its loyal fans as “Yours or Mine”. It was supposed to be a gay club, but patronized trendy heterosexuals and stars. Bianca Jigger is a popular guest for many fashion designers. The club was small. The table was covered with a red paper tablecloth and the illuminated dance floor was minimal, but the floor was immersed in a magical atmosphere. The characters in my novel “Frantic” from the early 1970s lived almost exclusively in a sombrero club. “The Igloos walked past a frustrated couple at the door and promised to pay for admission next time.” Half runs, half jumping the 강남풀싸롱 malicious guts.

The Tramp on Jermyn Street was still an institution

 And the Music Business Club Speakeasy on Maddox Street was still operating. However, in the late 1970s, the disco became modern and many clubs were opened. The Rolling Stones are still playing hardcore, just below the street there was a club called Mount berries with a young crowd. The late Mark Bolan and David Bowie hung there, just like Arnold Schwarzenegger in their bodybuilding days. Wedges were a little further down Kings Road, but all the toffees were there to eat and dance. The international Queen of Nightclubs Regime has added her London club to her international chain. It was located on the top floor of old Derry and Toms (later Bib) in High Street Kensington, but remained somewhat inaccessible to devoted club visitors. In the concept of the club, Andy Warhol and the people around him were walking in the roof garden, kingdoms of Europe like Caroline in Monaco were celebrating there, but the club died quickly.

The Embassy Club on Old Bond Street is without a doubt

 The best club in town. This is a British clone of Studio 54 with a great dance floor, which is perfect for disco dancing with hits such as Gloria Gaynor’s “I Survive”. The opening party was full of representatives of the British aristocracy and glitterati. Michael Fish, the inventor of the tie, asked a selected group of “ladies out for lunch” to organize a list of guests and forbade them to invite their gay friends.

In addition to the big discos that favored amylase nitrate dancing, there is a long bar downstairs and of course Morton’s Berkeley Square, famous for its future Zanzibar in Coven Garden, as well as clubs for more intimate members. Every night you will find in the long bar “who was the person”. The owners continue Grouch’s, a successful Shoo club in the 1980s. However, for club-goers in the late 1970s who enjoyed walking in the evenings, the club has since completely collapsed.
