Original color photo (recent print) of the Cafe Bizarre in Greenwich Village, 1960's.

n.p.:n.p., [1967].

Item #SKB-16302

The photo shows the outside of the Cafe Bizarre at night with its "spooky" decorations around the door and the huge "Rick Allmen's Cafe Bizzare" banner hanging out front as people walk by on an evening in the Village. The Cafe Bizarre was one of the most conspicuous and sensational clubs to capitalize on the beatnik phenomenon, and the venue for many counterculture poets and musicians of the period. Musitron Records even recorded an album of Beat festivities at Cafe Bizarre in the late '50s. (In the post-beatnik-era Warhol discovered The Velvet Underground there.) A must-have for Cafe Bizarre collectors. As new (10" x 7").

Price: $50.00
