This was never the old Stork Club , The Stork club was down off Market street , in a little alley next to Carlton Square, there was a little cinema,down there as well that shown porn movies (My Uncle told me about that),and the Stork was at the dead end of the alley if you went down another little alley just off there it came out into Cannon Street, a little futher down was Cromford Square, home to Paddy McGrath's Cromford Club

I disagree as I went to this club when it was called The Stork club in the late 70's. Perhaps your Stork Club was a different one?

In any case it is now called The Voodoo Lounge and has dramatically changed after years of catering for mature clientele. They no longer allow anyone in over 22 apparently.

In the Stork Club days it was full of Quality Street.

The Voodoo Lounge is a nice joint now - older people can go in! They just have to be open-minded about the music policy, I think! They've been doing some great soul/disco/house nights.
