Boeuf sur le Toit
Le Boeuf sur le Toit (French for "The ox on the roof"; named after a famous restaurant in Paris) was a gay nightclub in Orange Street, Soho. It was "the most luxurious and fashionable 'Gay' club in wartime London" and was known in the 1930s as “Molly’s”.
"But the best was Le Boeuf sur le Toit, beautifully furnished. Leonard Blackett at the piano, Teddy Jackson owned it... After the war ... Dolly [Mayers] bought the Boeuf and changed its name to the Romilly Club which is where Guy [Burgess] fell down the stairs and had to go to hospital. Someone pushed him actually."
