About this Item

The card prints (in white against a black background) the word "Bizarre" in the same spooky stylized lettering used on all their promotional material. Also prints the phone numbers and name of Rick Allmen who started the club in 1957. 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 vintage piece of beatnik ephemera from an important venue. Fine. Bookseller Inventory # SKB-15652
