Rod Stewart Michael Caine and Joan Collins celebrate Tramp club

Rod Stewart, 74, puts on a wild display as he parties alongside fellow Tramp patrons to mark the club’s 50th anniversary… with Michael Caine, 86, and Joan Collins, 86, joining in the raucous nostalgia

  • From The Beatles to George Best to Mick Jagger, the biggest names have descended on Tramp nightclub since its opening in the swinging sixties and on Thursday its 50th anniversary was rang in
  •  The club was founded by Oscar Lerman, Bill Ofner and Johnny Gold and given its name with inspiration from Charlie Chaplin’s character, The Little Tramp, when the narrator said: ‘This was the greatest Tramp of all’
  • Tramp’s website reads: ‘There is one rule from 1969 that will never change – what happens in Tramp, stays in Tramp. And the legends, both living and dead, who have frequented the venue will never tell you otherwise.’ 

From The Beatles to George Best to Mick Jagger, the biggest names have descended on Tramp nightclub since its opening in the swinging sixties. 

And some of the club’s most loyal customers returned to the scene of many a raucous evening on Thursday night, as Rod Stewart, 74, Joan Collins, 86, and Michael Caine, 86, led the stars for the club’s 50th anniversary in Mayfair. 

Rod, who was joined by his wife Penny, 48, was caught flashing his bottom at the camera as they entered the building shortly before he was followed by the stars – who undoubtedly have boundless tales from the inside of the club, which soared to prominence with its boasts of treating ‘everyone like a VIP’.



Through the ages: Michael Caine, Rod Stewart and Joan Collins (left to right) have all frequented the lavish venue for many years and they turned out on Thursday to celebrate 50 years of the club

Tramp has long been a hotbed for superstars, with the current general manager of the venue, David Fleming, detailing the appeal of the hot-spot as he said: ‘What happens in Tramp, stays in Tramp’. Michael also said in the past: ‘I used to live in Tramp. I was in there every night – givin’ it some of that!’

After 17 years of working in the club, David, 55, spoke to Luxury Life about the behaviour in the club, saying: ‘People are actually surprisingly well behaved in here. Stars are definitely more discreet now and also look after themselves more, so there isn’t so much of the excess that took place in the 1970s…

‘But the thing about Tramp is that, whether you’re a star or not, everybody who is a member is aware that it’s a huge privilege to be part of it. And so people do behave. I’ve only had to ban two people in the past five years.’

Throwing her support behind her husband, Penny showed off her supermodel figure in a back and grey striped minidress, which she complemented with black court shoes and a velvet YSL clutch bag.  



Then and now: Michael, Rod and Joan – all joined by their partners Shakira, Penny and Percy respectively – did not let age or time prevent them living it up in style at the venue on Thursday evening

        And the club has quite a history of badly-behaved celebrities.

        While nowadays the clubs attracts A-listers like Drake, Rihanna and Noel Gallagher, back in the day it was ‘normal’ to find the Beatles sitting next to the Rolling Stones and Frank Sinatra. 

        George Best’s antics at the bar included punching Michael Caine and trying to steal Bill Wyman’s wallet. 

        The late Who drummer Keith Moon was also obsessed with Tramp, sobbing when he was barred. 

        The star was black listed after he showed up to the club naked, strapped to the bonnet of his Rolls Royce, and proceeded to swing from a 17th century chandelier, ripping it out of the ceiling.
