Read Tales from the Colony Room: Soho’s Last Bohemia

Belle Hutton, AnOther, April 7, 2020

Forthcoming book Tales from the Colony Room (purchase here) details stories from Soho haunt The Colony Room Club, which for 50 years drew in some of the city’s greatest artists as longtime members – think Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon, Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk and Damien Hirst. Founded by Muriel Belcher in 1948, the notorious Dean Street club closed in 2008. Darren Coffield’s history of the club – which was due to accompany an exhibition of work by its most notable artist members – presents fascinating stories from ‘Soho’s last bohemia’.
