Danny La Rue's

The scene of La Rue's 1960's legendary revue club.

Location: 17 Hanover Square

Description: In 1964 comedian and entertainer Danny La Rue opened a nightclub here to which he gave his own name. I wanted it to be pure glamour, but I also wanted it to be a family club, so we had no hostesses.

The club became extremely popular for its satirical revues. We were doing marvellous satire years before That Was The Week That Was. La Rue observed.

The club attracted royalty, celebrities and coach parties in huge numbers and at the peak of its success had more than 13,000 members. Celebrity guests included The Beatles, Warren Beatty, Shirley Bassey, Noel Coward, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Dame Elizabeth Taylor, King Hussein of Jordan, Judy Garland, Lord Snowdon and Princess Margaret.

Danny La Rue's nightclub was extremely popular until its closure in 1972.

Today it is an exzclusive members only night club - Jalouse.
