I used to go to the La Ronde in the early 60's, there was a casino on the top floor, a club/disco first floor, cafe on the ground floor and restaurant in the basement, I think somebody called Paterson owned it, even though it was staffed by Turkish cypriots, someboy once said that they had changed to UK names! first floor club was opened all day, coffees and snacks,

La Ronde was owned by Reo Stakis. First floor was La Pergola.

that may have been later,
in 1962/5 there were three different names to each of the upper floors, My memory is so bad about names, we used to go there every lunchtime and after work. I was there nearly every day for about three years, I'm still in touch with some of the gang(after 45 years!!) will get the names of the Casino andthe rest
I was a member of the club on the first floor, entered through the downstairs cafe during the day and in the evening up the close shared by the 'Continental Cafe also on the first floor. left hand side of the landing.
I see you also knew the Central Hotel, small world!!!

I remember La Ronde well and often spent lunchtime there for a coffee, a chat and a dance.
I remember one of the owners (there were two brothers working there) was called Stathos. I understood them to have Greek roots.
I met my first sweetheart there. Does anyone remember Evelyn Livingston? I have lost contact with her and would like to catch up as we have so much to talk about.
I frequented La Ronde in the early sixties. I even had a coffee there with Bobby Rydell!

La Ronds was a favourite place to be seen on Sunday nights for myself and friends.... one night quietly enjoying "people watching"the glass door burst open and a guy marched in brandishing a very large knife, The cafe staff dealt quickly with the maniac and soon had the cafe back to normal if a bit shaken. Loved the place. Magsdove

Magsdove - Many moons ago when I used to go to the Locarno I sometimes didn't go home after work. I'd meet my buddies in the La Ronde and we'd eat dinner there. Back then none of us drank. They had really good spaghetti bolognese and the tastiest chicken omelet as well as a very generous shrimp cocktail. biggrin.gif
