The Mother Of All Cool Clubs

The Mother Of All Cool Clubs

People talk about how nightlife isn't what it used to be. In New York especially, the 70s and 80s seem a golden age of nightclubs: Studio 54, Mudd Club, Danceteria - to name a few. But the real revolution in nightlife began in the 60's when a club called the Cheetah opened in New York. Unlike its predecessors, the Cheetah gave lights and atmosphere as much importance as the music, creating a total environment perfect for those mind-altering times, and prefiguring today's coolest dance clubs.
