Gargoyle / Nell Gwynne Club. An advert for a Soho nightclub at 69 Dean Street, London. This 1960s ad shows the club as the Nell Gwynne by day and the Gargoyle Club by night, claiming to be "positively the most exciting show in London!" Membership was 25/- or 2.20 per year per club.

Built in the 1730s, 69 Dean Street is now an hotel, but was previously famous as the Gargoyle Club, and supposed to be haunted by King Charles II's famous mistress, Nell Gwynne who was said to have lived in a house on this location in the 17th Century.

The Gargoyle Club was opened in 1925 by David Tennant and became a regular meeting place of artists and the intelligensia including Soho resident Francis Bacon, Graham Greene, Dylan Thomas, John Minton and the double agents Burgess and Maclean.

In the late 1970s the venue hosted The Comedy Store upstairs, above the Nell Gwynne Strip Club on the lower floor and Dawn French, on appearing there, has said "It was full of horrible men. They'd fallen out of strip clubs and they couldn't understand why we were on stage and still had our clothes on"
