When it began...

It was not so long ago but still… Today you can’t surprise anyone with a nightclub. But some years ago you could do it easily.
During US Prohibition, all nightclubs went underground as just illegal speakeasy bars. Before 1954 and even some years after, most nightclubs and bars mostly used a jukebox or live bands.

In the early 1960s a members-only discotheque nightclub Annabel's was opened in Berkeley Square, London. The nightclub attained mainstream popularity until the disco era in 1970s.
During the 1980s with the New Romantic movement, in London there was a vibrant nightclub scene, that included nightclubs like The Blitz, Club for Heroes and the Camden Palace.

Both music and fashion contained the aesthetics of the movement. The bands included Human League, Depeche Mode, Blondie, Duran Duran, Ultravox. and Eurythmics. Reggae-influenced bands included Culture Club and Boy George, and electronic vibe bands - Visage.
At that time at London nightclubs, young women would often wear mens' suits and young men would wear make-up. Well the London of that time may seemed to you a little bit strange and the nightclubs were quite differ from our modern clubs. But that's our history.
