Hammersmith Palais 21:09 - Oct 22 with 7184 viewsPunteR

I seem to remember someone posting a YouTube video of footage from the 70s in colour of a Saturday night in the palais. It's way before my time but wanted to show my mother in law who used to be a regular down there and will probably know some faces. She also met my wife's dad there.
If someone knows it, could you please post on here as I can't find it on YouTube.
Many thanks in advance.

Thanks mate. Unfortunately I can't get sound on this video. I think this is the one that was posted before though, but I think had music plus a narrator.

Everything was very brown in the 70s.

Also interesting to see the contrasting dance styles: the more individualistic do-it-yourself (and by yourself) interpretive dancing at the beginning, and the ballroom (couples) dancing at the end.

The nightclub of last resort. We used to go to the Palais whenever we’d left the pub too late to get in anywhere else.

It was very down market compared to what was around elsewhere in the late 70’s, early 80’s but once you’d got over yourselves it was usually a good laugh.

Yeah, never really a Palais fan, like yourself, if there was no other option....

Anyway, spotted myself in the vid...with Punte's mother in law!

My Dad was in the Hammersmith Palais dancing to the Joe Loss orchestra one night in 1940 when the band stopped playing in the middle of a number.Joe Loss went up to the microphone and announced that news had come though that France had surrendered to the Germans.He then asked the audience to all stand to attention while his band played 'La Marseillaise' my Dad who was 19 at the time volunteered for the Army a few days later as did thousands of others.

Early 80s used to go to the Palais, as mentioned earlier always easy to get in on Saturday if you had been refused elsewhere. Also great venue for gigs saw Bauhaus, Siouxsie & The Banshees and Echo & The Bunnymen there around the same time.

Lots of memories here: My mum and dad met in the Palais in the early sixties as well. My mum was there with her sister who was apparently having a fling/hot date with dishy Richard O Sullivan at the time. I saw Oasis there in the mid 90s plus a lot of shoddy club nights on the pull (never quite as successful as my Dad or Punter’s in-laws).

When they knocked it down I ended up with one of the old original road signs for Hammersmith Grove that was by the front door that someone had chucked in a skip - gave it to mum and dad to celebrate their first meeting but I think they were underwhelmed by my slightly rusty gift. Plus of course one of the great Clash songs.

It used to be said that lots of men met their wives at the Palais. And their wives gave them a right thumping when they got home.

I was at that Oasis gig queenparker, just before they went massive.
Had many a night in the Palais in the 90's, some good, some desperately poor. You know you're searching for something else in life when you find yourself in the Palais on a Tuesday night with about 40 other people

Am I dreaming or was there a band called Luna Park who used to come on for half an hour on Saturday nights in the 80's?

Wow, what memoriess one of my first dance halls at the tender age of 14 in 1970, god knows how I got in, red satin trousers and a blue satin jacket to match, a few wisps of bum fluff, thought I looked so mature !

If memory serves me right had a house band play, but the dance floor always seemed empty, once the DJ came on in the band breaks it miracously filled with groovers.

Did become a place to go only in desperation for a night out, prefered the Lyceum in the Strand.

My mum lent me a book about closed down gig venues. Looks like there were so many great gig venues about. West London is so dead for that sort of thing now. Even when I was growing up tbh.

Yes, great recall, might have been playing night before 86 Milk Cup final when Rangers fans went banzai and ran the bouncers out onto the road - was hod carrying that summer and one of the brickies was a bouncer at The Palais - was fuming - didn't help he was from Luton either!

Blimey, puts joining in with the ‘oops upside your head’ routine in the shade some 40 odd years later!

It was like the O.K. Corral in there most Saturday nights i.e. punch ups on the dance floor, stools being thrown around plus remember once seeing a bloke being held over the balcony by his legs!

The only two I recognised were the two featured bouncers, as I was a regular down there. Wow - did I really used to look / dance like that???
And yes, it WAS a cattle market.
