House of Bamboo, Canal Street

Adverts for House of Bamboo, Canal Street, 21/4/1962 & 27/4/1962. (c) Manchester Beat.

These two small newspaper adverts for all-nighters in the House of Bamboo club on Canal Street in 1962 are the only evidence of this 1960s soul club, thanks to Manchester Beat [1].  This club would have been open when Canal Street was far from the bustling pedestrianised thoroughfare packed with gay bars - more like this as in 1963 looking down Canal Street towards Princess Street.
