The Scotch of St James club was a popular meeting place for musicians and bands in the 1960s. Paul McCartney frequently visited it, as well as bands like The Moody Blues.
The Club was also the first place where Jimi Hendrix played in England on September 24, 1966, when he joined for some blues standards with the house formula 7 band. On 19 October, 1966 the Jimi Hendrix Experience played their first UK gig as a private showcase at Scotch of St James. The Beatles (and many other rock stars) hung out here and had their own table. Today it's the site of the Directors Lodge Club, a gentlemen's hostess club.
