Iconic London member’s club, Tramp marked its Golden 50th Anniversary with a star-studded, gold-themed party last night (23 MAY), celebrating its legacy at the epicentre of cultural revolutions and the galaxy of stars who helped turn the legendary basement of bacchanalia into a nightlife institution, since it first opened its 40 Jermyn Street doors in the last fortnight of the Sixties.
Stars including Sir Michael Caine, Sir Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster, Dame Joan Collins, Natalie Dormer, Mark Ronson, Nick Rhodes, Tallia Storm and The Raconteurs headed to the Jermyn Street venue to toast half-century as the world’s most successful, multi-generational members club.
And the club also shared its milestone celebrations with Dame Joan Collins, who received a cake as she celebrated her 86th birthday at the event.
Rod Stewart arrived in a playful mood and moonied waiting photographers outside the venue before heading into the party.
A unique flower tunnel created by luxury florists Toomanyflowers funnelled guests into the oak-panelled basement venue that still boasts exquisite 17th Century chandeliers from the Rothschild Palace.
Guests at last night’s event enjoyed drinks including, L’Orbe martini flights created with the world’s first naturally infused caviar vodka, the club’s signature Let’s Get Tramped cocktail, Louis Roederer Champagne and a limited edition Tramp champagne created especially for the event.
When Tramp first opened its doors it became famous for the burger menu served in its luxurious Zodiac Room restaurant – 12 burgers to represent the signs of the Zodiac, with its secret ingredient guarded by Tramp chefs over the decades. And last night the club paid homage by serving a special, 24-carat gold-leaf Tramp burger.
Other canapés included beef fillet, lobster tempura ‘fish & chips’ and Oscietra Caviar supplied by Gourmet House
For 50 years, Tramp has existed as the hard partying antidote to stuffier members clubs in the capital and has long been associated with rock ’n’ roll characters and last night was no different, with guests hitting the dance floor until 3am, with celebrity DJ, Fat Tony performing in the club’s Discotheque room.
