The Studio Club

Has anybody memories of dancing down at Allen Dean’s in the late 1950’s early 1960’s?

This membership card is from those times. I and many others were taught how to ballroom dance and jive by John Dean with “Auntie” Lulu.

The dance floor was situated below in the basement the The Liverpool & Victoria Insurance Co. building in Grand Parade, which was demolished many years ago.

If you have any memories of Allen Dean’s please leave a comment below. Look forward to reading about your experiences.

  • The Liverpool and Victoria Building is still there, different in colour (it was black before) but certainly not demolished. A very distinguished building in what has become a ‘skid-row’ of drink and drug hostels.
