"'Don't I see you at Bang last week?'"

Bang was a gay nightclub which began life in 1976 as a Monday-night only event in the basement of the London Astoria, situated at 157 Charing Cross Road in central London.

Bang expanded throughout the 1980s, and later evolved into G-A-Y. The London Astoria was demolished in 2009.
