The Cave of the Golden Calf
The Cave of the Golden Calf was a night club in London. It opened in an underground location at 9 Heddon Street, just off Regent Street, in 1912 and became a haunt for the wealthy, aristocratic and bohemian. It is quite possibly the first "gay bar" in the modern sense. Its creator Frida Strindberg née Uhl set it up as an avant-garde and artistic venture.
It introduced London to new concepts of nightlife and provided a solid model for future nightclubs. Philip Hoare in his book, Oscar Wilde's Last Stand, provided the following description:
The club is also compared with the parties of The Coterie, a group of young aristocrats and intellectuals in London:
The Cave went bankrupt in 1914, but its name lived on, and recently inspired a show at the Edinburgh Fringe and the 2010 Commemoration Ball at New College, Oxford. The building became a post office and can be seen in the background of the cover of David Bowie's album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The site is now occupied by a bar, The Living Room W1.

Daniel Tiffany, 2009
Poetry has long been regarded as the least accessible of literary genres. But how much does the obscurity that confounds readers of a poem differ from, say, the slang that seduces listeners of hip-hop? Infidel Poetics examines not only the shared incomprensibilities of poetry and slang, but poetry's genetic relation to the spectacle of undergr...
