A Disco for the Swinging Sixties

The Best Disco Ever - according to Sir Michael Caine

Location: 7 Leicester Place, off Leicester Square, WC2H

Description: Indeed, this marks the spot - 7 Leicester Place - the entrance to what was, for a relatively short period in the mid-60s, the Ad Lib club.

The club itself was up on the 4th floor, overlooking the adjacent Lisle Street. Apparently the interior wes all panelled wood, low tables, chandeliers, dark, anonymous, musical policy - exclusively soul/blues/r&b.

Strictly for the 'movers' and the 'shakers', the Beatles had their own table, and the Ad Lib was one of the relatively few places that John felt he could go without being unduly bothered.

Michael Caine was a big fan and according to him it was the 'best disco ever' - and that's coming from Alfie.

What a shame it had to close!
