Dancin at the Palais
A lovingly designed typographic Riso print celebrating the legendary Dundee dance hall, the Palais. A tribute to one of Dundee's most cherished venues from bygone years – this print is a celebration of the old dance hall and music venue. Taking inspiration from old ads and music posters, this print is a re-imagination of those nostalgic and dazzling typographic designs. This will look fabulous hanging on your walls with its vibrant colours and bold lettering! The Palais opened in the 1920s, creating a dancing boom amongst the people of Dundee. South Tay Street was lined with folk eager for an afternoon tea dance and to swing into the evening dancing up a storm! In the 1960s it transformed into one of the best places to see live music and top artists with their Top Ten Club, playing host to the likes of David Bowie, Bee Gees, Lulu and the Hollies. By the 1970s, the Palais had closed its doors and reopened as Samantha's, before later turning into the club Boomers. Sadly in the 1980s a devastating fire burned the iconic venue to the ground, leaving Dundonians to fondly remember it in its glory days.
