Hi All...I used to go to the Lindella with you guys in my spotty youth. Moved away from arden 1970 to the shawlands area, near my old school. I was a "mental young toon boy" then. Good and bad memories

I had no idea the Lindella survived for so long. My only memory is of it being where Lulu & the Luvvers first became known- early 60´s when I worked nearby in the Central Hotel.

Never did visit it- too busy in those halcyon days having parties in the staff quarters of the hotel.
Amazing that my liver has survived to the age of 67 so far.

I seen Maggie Bell once, and Alex Harvey when he played at The Cave under the arches next to Jamaca Street, we used to go to the La Ronde then the'new' Phonographic in Buchanan street
for a change
we went to the lyndella the night Lulu had just come back from London when she first launched her first record, that was the one and only time
we thought we were a bit too sophisticated (at 17)!!!

Hi all my name is David Sinclair and I can remember as a wee boy my Dad opening the Lindella Club at 54 Union Street, Glasgow. You went through the pend at Crawleys sports shop, turned left and up the stairs to the top floor. My young sister was Linda and my mother was named Ella and my Dad puit both their names together and called the club THe Lindella Club. This had to be in the late 1950's and initially the Lindella opened as a jazz club and the annual membership cost was six shillings per person. Later as jive became more and more popular my Das started a jiving school and he had a number of terrific jivers and he formed a number of jive teams. The most amazing jiver was a black guy, a real gentleman, George Leslie who danced with a girl called Mary, they were fantastic. What a lot of people dont know is the Lindella Jive Team performed on the Royal Command Performance and I think this was 1961. My Dad did not keep well and due to ill health reasons he did a deal with Betty and Alex Allan who ran the club successfully thereafter for a number of years. I used to work at the Lindella for extra pocket money and my job was to go round and pick up the empty 'gingy' bottles. Not much of a job but I loved it just the same as it was for my Dad, Bill Sinclair, the man who was behind the formation of a great Glasgow Club. Keep Jiving - David Sinclair

Great memories there Davy,in the late fiftys it was our sunday night club about an hour of slow stuff followed by an hour or so of cha cha and mambo,remember the luminous lights,everything dazzling white including the dandruff woe betide you if you had a falsie as your teeth would be gleaming but it would be yellow always finished the night with a piano instrumental with words the piece was called"Till" but ithink it came from some classical piece way our oor heids.I think it was a chinese resturaunt for a good number of years.
