The Kentucky Club, was a club situated at 106 Mile End Road, above a Georgian row of shops in Stepney, East London. The Kray twins bought and owned it in 1962, inviting many celebrities such as Barbara Windsor, at the beginning of their rise to power.

The Kentucky Club was upstairs during the Sixties, one of the many nightclubs the Krays opened. The Kentucky's biggest night was the March 1962 party held to celebrate the premiere of the cockney comedy film Sparrows Can't Sing, starring Barbara Windsor, which was held opposite in the Empire Cinema (now disused).

The building was built in the early 19th century and is Grade II Listed. It was for a long period of time, an Asian fried chicken take-away, Perfect Fried Chicken and Ribs, but is now a Turkish restaurant.
