What was your “swinging London” experience?

“Swinging London”

“At night in London, anything could happen.  You might attend a concert by a band of geniuses who would create music worth remembering for decades or see a fortune come and go gambling at an elegant casino in Mayfair or learn the Twist at a trendy discotheque near Piccadilly or smoke pot at an after-hours Caribbean joint in Notting Hill or laugh out loud at an old-fart prime minister being lampooned on a West End stage or nightclub in Soho.”  Shawn Levy, Ready, Steady, Go! The Smashing Rise and Giddy Fall of Swinging London.
