Olivers Pub Bar, Oxford Street

Apparently this place was formerly part of Fagins (Rafters) night club.  Olivers Pub Bar was open during the day and was a large drinking den with Youngers Scotch bitter, keg Tartan, a "quiet oasis..." and an additional saloon-style bar offering drinkers "compartments with a privacy rarely found in pubs today" [1].  Rafters was thriving throughout the the '70s so it sounds like this place was entirely separate from the club.
