Gay Guide '71: no sign-- illuminated facade.

"Now this place is a riot. (That was a bad word to use) What we mean is that this joint jumps. You can almost tell by the stuttering in the mad,mad,mad... Both Wally and Woody are the kind of guys that you would like to be around, never a dull moment."

Alexei Romanoff, who went on to open New Faces, and helped organize the protest against the raids at the Black Cat Tavern, was a bartender here in 1962.

A gay bar has been in this location since 1964, until Cuffs closed in 2001.
