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]


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.

Rajput prince Ankit, candidate for the 2016 London Mayoral elections in March 2015 had made claim to the titles of the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir at the neighboring Hotel Café Royal and held his post-coronation reception at Tramp.[2][3] Attendees for his reception had included Nicole Coste, Lindsay Lohan and Ethiopian prince Sebastyanos Beyene.[4]

Entering it's fifth decade of operations in the early 21st century Tramp continued to remain an exclusive preserve of an elite clientele with the likes of Drake, Rihanna, Lara Stone, Noel Gallagher, Yasmin Le Bon and Ashley Cole revelling into the early hours of the night at the club.[5][6][7]

David Beckham had taken his newly single son Brooklyn to Tramp after his split with Chole Moretz.[8] Kate Moss sang Happy Birthday to Sam McKnight for his 60th Birthday party at Tramp.[9] Her younger sister Lottie Moss along with her friend Tallia Storm have also attended festivities at the club.[10]

According to MI5, the Russian spy Anna Chapman frequented the club with a view to seduce the royal princes.[11]
