Tramp is a private, members-only nightclub located on Jermyn Street in central London, England. Founded in 1969 by Johnny Gold with business partner Oscar Lerman, and Bill Ofner (Luishek) Tramp is considered to be one of the most exclusive member's clubs in the world and is a regular haunt for celebrities. It was sold by founder Gold in 2003.[1]

Reputation[edit]

Over its 40 year history Tramp has been frequented by many celebrities, socialites, aristocrats and royalty.

Peter Sellers, Joan Collins, Liza Minnelli and Ringo Starr have all had their wedding receptions at the glitzy club. Infamous stories that took place under the Tramp chandeliers include a young Shirley MacLaine falling asleep on top of a table overnight, The Who's Keith Moon dancing naked on the dance floor, and comedian Mel Brooks getting on all fours and running around under the tables barking like a dog.

Tramp's Gold, a book about the club written by Gold himself and with a foreword from Michael Caine, was published in 2001.
