Opened from May 28, 1966, and closed in the 1970s, the Cheetah Club was a disco and venue. The musical Hair got its start here, and so did the dance craze known as salsa.

Jimi Hendrix was playing shows here in 1966 when Keith Richards's girlfriend, Linda Keith, saw him perform. She told Chas Chandler (former bass player for the Animals) about him, and Chandler became Hendrix's manager, moved him to England, and helped him form The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
