The Beatles performed at this London night club and restaurant on just this one occasion, following their first appearance at the New Musical Express Poll-Winners’ All-Star Concert in Wembley.
Although the Pigalle later became a fashionable destination for London clubbers, on this occasion the audience almost entirely consisted of Jewish people, as the concert had only been advertised – for reasons unknown – in the weekly Jewish Chronicle newspaper.
