So you said we were going out
To the 100 Club
Then you said it ain't my scene
Then you turned up alone
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

So you're on the floor at fifty-four
Think you can last at the Palace
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

I’m standing on the Vortex floor

Donovan's "The Trip" is (partly) named after the short-lived Hollywood club of the same name, though it isn't mentioned in the lyrics.

Similarly, "Bad Night At The Whisky" by The Byrds.

Now this Pedro dude had the attitude
But the 70's had him spaced
Up in Hollywood
Maybe then he could
find a reason for his bass
Turned his Volkswagen, a spielwagon
Hong Kong Cafe New Years show
Drove up from Pedro
From Pedro Watt drove
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

"The Story Of Them" by Them

    Now just 'round about this time
    With the help of the three J's
    Started playin' at the Maritime
    That's, Jerry, Jerry and Jimmy
    You know they were always fine
    And they helped us run the Maritime
    Don't forget Kit, hittin' people on the head
    An' knockin' 'em out
    You know he did his best and all
    Was something else, then
    ...
    You can look up at Maritime Hotel
    Just a little bit sad, gotta walk away
    Wish it well

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Lookin' for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should have seen him go, go, go

I presume Lou is taking about the place in Glasgow :)
