Teen day at Library Lounge, 1975

Posted on October 30, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
The Library Lounge in the University Plaza, a popular night club in the UK area, tried an experiment in February 1975 to allow teenagers in the club on Sundays. The alcohol was locked away, the cover charge was doubled to $2 and everyone over 18 was kept out. Phil Block, the manager, hoped that the Sunday openings would help the club's community image and that possibly kids would tend to roam less on Friday and Saturday nights to save their energy for Sunday.
