Subject: RE: Remember Les Cousin's, in London's Soho?
Les Macacarbre (actually Le Macarbe) was in Meard Street which ran between Wardour Street and Dean Street. It was at the Wardour Street end almost opposite The Roundhouse pub, where Alexis Korner and Cyril Davies ran a skiffle club and later one of the first blues clubs in London. Back in the skiffle days it had coffins for tables with candles inside skulls on top. The building now houses up-market offices.
