DANI LA RUE
One of Britain's most adored female impersonators, and certainly one of the highest paid entertainers of his era, Dani La Rue, once owned a luxurious apartment in the Alkaid complex in the Lomo de Los Riscos district of Torremolinos. A Steinbach grand piano, complete with crystal chandelier, took centre stage in the apartment, which he shared with his long-time lover.
When staying in the town, La Rue loved to visit the Bar Scandalz, previously situated in Calle Casa Blanca. The bar was owned by a choreographer and was known for its camp ambience, being particularly popular with the older gay community of the town.
