Club Eleven

Club Eleven, opening in December, 1948 in the heart of Soho, was one of England’s first real bepop, jazz clubs. Only lasting two years due to scandal, it thrust London into the genre as the city saw club after club open in the next years following.

I can never recall such a sense of evil excitement in a club. The atmosphere was so vivid that the red glow from the stand and the savage beat made me think of hell on earth!”  – Tony Hall
