Many of the  Irish people who went to the London dance halls in the mid 60s will remember the big name ones such as the Galtimore, but I was wondering if anyone can remember any of the smaller ones such as the Bamba club in Tottenham Court Road or the 32 club in Harlesden. The 32 club was particularly unusual in that it it was a long narrow hall with a stage at each end so that 1 band could play their spot while another one was setting up. Gigs usually ran 5 hours 9 till 2
There were lots of these '' smaller'' venues around London at the time and I would love to hear about any memories of them.

There were about ten Irish dancehalls back then. The Bamba was in Kilburn, it's now a supermarket, The Blarney Club was on Tottenham Court Road now an Odeon theater.
