Gate of Horn
The Gate of Horn was a 100-seat folk music club, located in the basement of the Rice Hotel on the southeast corner of Chicago Avenue and Dearborn Street, on the near north side of Chicago, Illinois, in the 1950s and 1960s. It was opened by Albert Grossman in 1956 and was where Odetta, Bob Gibson, Roger McGuinn and others made their name. Also appearing at the club were Theodore Bikel, Josh White, Jo Mapes, Brownie McGhee, Sonny Terry and the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, Hoyt Axton and Bonnie Dobson.
McGuinn later wrote the song "Gate of Horn", about the venue and the way it affected him.
Bill Cosby went as a comedian on the "Gate of Horn"
