The Safari Lounge, The Scene and The Mecca Nitespot  —  all utilised the Edison Hall building at 230 Tuam Street.  The photograph above is a view along Tuam Stree to the east, and it shows the Edison Hall building clearly (although the ground-floor shop and the entrance to The SafariLounge/TheScene/The Mecca Nitespot are not clearly visible due to the shading across the road and into that particular portion of the image).  Key residents at particular times were Peter Nelson and The Castaways (The Safari Lounge), Les Street and The Alleys (The Scene) and The Detours (The Mecca Nitespot).
