It does sound like the Forty Thieves went downmarket at some point, as late night venues invariably do. It looks like it was a reasonably respectable place around the late 60s but that was before I frequented (or inspected) such premises. By the mid-70s it was certainly of a more dubious nature. It is an interesting phenomenon though. I remember when Mr George was quite a decent late night option, but it went downhill as newer venues opened, such as the City Centre Club. I guess they become less choosy about their clientele as competition increases.
