Blitz as a venue was around for a long time before Steve Strange days, it was originally a World War 2 themed wine bar.
I’m not sure when it opened but I started going there from about 76/77 and worked behind the bar around 77 /78 .
around 77 /78 .
I was studying at Central school of Art and had friends at St Martins School of Art so lots of us used to end up there. Biddie and Eve were the resident act and sang there 2 or 3 times a week
I worked at the Blitz when Biddie & Eve were appearing but stopped before Steve Strange took over the door.
