Peter Stringfellow: Celebrities pay tribute for ‘good times’ (

Peter Stringfellow

The flamboyant businessman and “king of clubs” passing on in the early hours from cancer, a condition he had kept secret from public.

Many of his famous friends and acquaintances have been sharing stories about him, with singer Sir Rod Stewart tweeting: “So long pioneer Pete. Thanks for the good times.”

And many more, indeed it seeming that everybody has a story about Pete, with it noted by Comedian David Baddiel that “he had a sense of humour beyond the haircut”.

But although comedy actress Su Pollard, who worked with him, defined him as “a fantastic role model for other entrepreneurs” others could not quite get beyond the sleaze associated with being a nightclub and later and topless table-side dancing strip club pioneer.

Karen Ingala Smith, chief executive of Nia, a charity supporting women subjected to sexual and domestic violence, tweeted: “Can you stop it with the eulogising of woman objectifier Peter Stringfellow.”

Dubbed “the intellectual conservative” by The Spectator today (, “Stringy” had been an ardent Tory supporter—unsurprising for a man and mullet that very much came to fame during Margaret Thatcher’s entrepreneurial rewarding decade with his move to London and the opening of Stringfellows Covent Garden and then the Hippdrome—and donating more than £40,000 to the Conservative Party since 2003 but had lost his support over Brexit, despite curiously then for a time switching allegiance to a single-issue Eurosceptic party UKIP in 2012, saying that he felt the “price was too high” for the UK to leave the EU (, Jan. 2018).
