Grace Jones performs at the launch of Annabel's Docu-Film 'A String of Naked Lightbulbs' at Annabel's on October 28, 2014 in London, England.
It was reportedly Princess Diana's favourite place to go dancing, and the staff there even refused entry to the Beatles when they turned up shoeless, so viewers are in for a treat when BBC 4 airs its new documentary sharing the secrets of the iconic members' club Annabel's.
Opened by Mark Birley in 1963, Annabel's was one of the first exclusive members-only clubs and became a hub of Swinging London, with the Beatles becoming regular guests thanks to the strict privacy it offered. Since then, it's been frequented by legends of popular culture including Ike and Tina Turner, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Joan Collins, Johnny Cash and Kate Moss – and is still the only nightclub visited by the Queen.
The new docu-film, shot by Ridley Scott Associates, features interviews with former staff and famous patrons including Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and Anna Wintour to unravel the mysteries of the London hotspot and celebrate its enduring success.
