I believe it was called Oceans's Eleven, then Genevieves and then The International, there was another post regarding the club recently  :)

It was later called The Sting (mid to late '80s)

Thanks for that Rocles... I moved out of the area in 1978 so didn't really know of The Sting

After Genevieves it was definitely called The International, with The Carousel on Plymouth Grove.

Joan,

[censored], may have got this wrong!  I think The International was on Plymouth Grove, formally The Carousel.

There were two International clubs....

The International 1 was on Anson Road - previously Oceans 11, the rink, Genevieves etc' while the International 2 was on Plymouth Grove - previously the Ardri, Slosky's, Carousel, the Astoria etc'

This club was my haven, used to collect the free tickets so we could go during the week.
We used to frequent Kloisters as well.
