La Discothèque  

From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Discotheques originated in occupied Paris during the Second World War. The Nazis banned jazz and closed many of the dance clubs, breaking up jazz groups and driving fans into illicit cellars to listen to recorded music. One of these venues - on the rue Huchette - called itself La Discothèque. --David Haslam
