Jean McKinnon took over in 1980


"In 1980 it was taken over by Jean McKinnon as sole licensee, after she and her husband had left the Victoria in John Bright St. The bar was mixed, gay friendly with a few rent boys working there.

She was an ex-thespian being the last "Betty" in the stage act 'Wilson Keppel and Betty'. Her son was a drag artiste. The bar was fitted out in dark wood panelling by M&B and remained so until it became Partners. After Partners the bar was renamed Glamourous."
