My dad played at the Latin Quarter in NY for 7 years, till they closed. Funny you should mention this.


I adore that last poster! Do you own that menu?


My father was manager of Chicago's Latin Quarter Night Club on Randolph Street during WWII. I have autographed 8x10 B&W PR photos*still in their frame) of: TED LEWIS, MARTHA RAYE, LIND BROTHERS, RITZ BROTHERS, THE HARMONICA RASCALS, AL KELLY & WILLIE HOWARD, LOU HOLTZ, SHIRLEY DENNIS, & others.
I am now willing to sell my family's collection.


I just found a photo of my grandma at Chicago's Latin Quarter. It's her at a table with a guy (not grandpa), and the photo is inside a booklet from the club. (Booklet for lack of a better word). I thought I'd look into what this moment in her history was, so I'm glad I found your post.
