About Art D'Lugoff
The Village Gate was a nightclub at the corner of Thompson and Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, New York. Art D'Lugoff opened the club in 1958, on the ground floor and basement of 158 Bleecker Street. The large Chicago School structure built in 1896 by renowned architect Ernest Flagg was known at the time as Mills House No. 1 and served as a flophouse for transient men.
Throughout its 38 years the Village Gate featured such greats as John Coltrane, Jacques Brel, Coleman Hawkins, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Evans, Vasant Rai, and Nina Simone. Aretha Franklin made her first New York appearance there.
