It has been left to rot and it does look a complete eyesore now days. Back in the 70s, me and my mates used to go, not into the coconut Grove, but to the little club next door, Annabelle's. We were still at school and we thought we were ever so grown up with 12 inch thick make up, 6 inch heels and a ciggy. I'm so glad I never took to smoking, all I got was 10 number 6 every time we went to a club. All we wanted to do wa dance and the school discos were crap! Half a lager and lime was 19p in the pub and 21p in the club! Daylight robbery!  Laughing
We had faboo times and watched as the fashion changed from those platform shoes and flares into drainy's (known as skinny jeans today) and the shoes were either pasties or pointy court shoe.
If we didn't go there then we went to The Grafton....(dear god...)

Anyway, roll into the 80s and me and my ex hubby used to go to Lord Snooty's round the corner (part of the same building) which is now also an eyesore.

Could it have been saved and restored? Who knows. I went mad when the Curzon was being torn down but, now as the new Home Bargains building is near complete i have to say that old Swan is looking somewhat a lot tidier.
