The Avenue After Hours
July 08, 2022
During the mid-20th Century, the fun on Indiana Avenue didn’t stop at closing time. After-hours clubs offered live music until the break of dawn. There was a catch: these clubs operated outside the limits of the law and were subject to police raids. Still, patrons packed after-hours clubs like The Sunset, The Missile Room, The Log Cabin Inn and The Frederick Douglass Social Club. Discover the history and hear from the artists who were a part of the Avenue’s after-hours scene.
