History of Madam La Zongas

The Landlady Flossie's Dad once had a cat named Madam La Zonga. Years later at a Boot Sale, she found a CD of 1930/40s music entitled "Serenade in the night". On it was a double-entendre track "Six lessons from Madam La Zonga" (if your ever down Havana way). She then found out it was the title of a film staring "the Mexican Spitfire" Lupe Velez whose party trick was to throw her dress over her face whilst wearing no undergarments... Unfortunately she committed suicide at the age of 36 for finding herself unmarried and pregnant.

The room itself is decorated like so - because when taking over the Pub 10 years ago - the bar itself is quite 1960s Kisch. So Flossie decided to keep it like that and for the next 9 years traipsed around Car Boot Sales buying anything suitable for it from Spanish Dolls to 1960s Nudie Calendars...
