"Oh, Mama Can This Really Be the End?" – Bleecker Street, New York, New York
The Bitter End is a 230-person capacity nightclub, coffeehouse and folk music venue in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However, after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End. During the folk music revival of the early 1960s the club hosted "hootenannies" every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylan, Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
