The Eroticism of Fat Men
“Vanity Bar (Carlisle St, Soho, next to the Nellie Dean of Soho pub) opens today at 1pm. It will be open Monday to Wednesday 5pm-3am; Thurs-Friday 1pm to 3am; entrance is free before 8pm, £5 before 10pm and £10 after 10pm. The council will not allow jug collections so there will be no stage dancing at present, free stage dancing is being considered for the future. Private dances start at £10, and buy 1 drink and get 1 free before 8pm. There will be a web site in about 2 weeks time.” (Nobby)
Official opening Friday 26 June, free champagne before 9PM.
Sunset Strip (about 30 yards away) don’t have jug collections of course, and the stage dancing is constant and of high quality. The DJs won’t allow the girls to delay their turn on stage for a single moment. I wonder why Vanity don’t just adopt this model straightaway.
UPDATE 14 October 2015: Apparently they now have stage dancing. Whether it is constant or intermittent I cannot say (as I do not know).
