PALL MALL. Scottish, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA’BB. Pall Mall [1] is a street in the West End of London between Trafalgar Square and St. James’s Place, in the heart of London’s club district. Located on Pall Mall are several distinguished gentlemen’s clubs, including the Athenaeum, the Reform, the Army and Navy and the Travellers. The name for the area derives from paille-maille, a croquet-like game played on a course laid out in the late 17th century on the site of what is now the thoroughfare. King Charles II used to play the game there.
