Back in the 1960s this was the place where would-be future pop icons hung out. We've found references to: Marc Bolan, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Donovan, Small Faces, Elton John, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Paul Simon, The Clash.  David Bowie apparently practically lived here and met his first band here.
