Notes NOTES: Lubetkin was asked by the circus acrobat and trick cyclist, Roland Tutin, to convert a garage into a nightclub. Lubetkin was responsible for the interior design with Bob Rodionov and this included painted scenes, model yachts, toy horses and circus equipment. The club became fashionable with Paris's chic set, Jean Cocteau being amongst its patrons, before it was demolished in the 1930s.
