Menu from the Gaslight Cafe in Greenwich Village. GASLIGHT CAFE.

Menu from the Gaslight Cafe in Greenwich Village.

NY: Gaslight Cafe, ca. 1962.

Item #SKB-17108

A single quarto sheet of thick pink stock folded twice. The cover features a place to put a stamp and mailing address so presumably the cafe could mail this to potential customers or tourists could mail this to friends at home. The Gaslight Cafe was one of the premier venues for the folk music scene in Greenwich Village during the '50s and '60s. Dylan, Dave Van Ronk and everybody else performed there and many notable albums were recorded at the Gaslight. Aside from the creases from having been folded as issued, it was folded again, and is somewhat rumpled as if it was placed in a back pocket and sat on, but it's flattened over the years and is thoroughly presentable.

Price: $45.00
