The Carousel Club in Panton Street, London W1, on being approached for a possible writeup, said. “It’s absolutely pointless you coming down here. This isn’t a gay club. It’s rather mixed. You must be thinking of somewhere else. It isn’t gay at all, really!”
And that was after the guy who originally answered the phone had told him (in a whisper) not to be too unkind. Thank you very much.
