The Hammersmith Palais de Danse, later known as the Hammersmith Palais, was a ballroom and entertainment venue in London from 1919 to 2007.
The venue was immortalised by the Clash in their classic fusion of punk and reggae White Man in Hammersmith Palais in 1978
Bands such as PiL, The Cramps, and Soft Cell (who played their last ever gig there in 1984) made the venue popular, it also hosted The Cure, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, and The Sex Pistols.
As of 2007 the venue was closed down and the building now faces an uncertain future, the site may be used for an office and restaurant complex, or a students' hall of residence. The Hammersmith and Fulham Council is expected to rule on the proposed demolition and development in November 2009.
