On this Friday, Dec. 5, 2014 photo, musician Tim Arnold, poses in his flat in central London's Soho district. The closure of Madame Jojo's, the venerable burlesque nightclub has ignited a battle between developers, locals and entertainers for the soul of Soho, the city's late-night hub, red-light district and creative heart.

“I think it’s a robbery. It’s a robbery from the people who visit Madame Jojo’s, and it’s a robbery of the people who perform there,” said musician Tim Arnold, standing in front of the club’s locked doors and unlit sign.

With bright lights, sleek seating and a modern look, the pizza has remained consistently good over nearly a quarter-century and still offers diners a deal: three large cheese pizzas for $30.
