Ched's Lounge, New Orleans, 1960s
Go-go dancers performed The Frog, The Watusi and The Monkey on stage at Ched's Lounge in New Orleans in the Sixties. This striking menu cover announced that the bar was featuring a new type of entertainment called "Discothèque." You can read the full explanation on the interior menu but Ched's was way ahead of the curve since disco really only became popular in the Seventies Billboard magazine, reporting on the new music phenomenon in 1965 in an article entitled Discotheque: How is the Go-Go Going?, paid a visit to Ched's. The magazine said the go-go girls at Ched's were "WILD!"
