Quiet Knight (The), Chicago, IL

The Quiet Knight Bar was a Chicago nightclub located at 953 West Belmont Avenue. The Quiet Knight was where a lot of folks saw a future star musician for the first time. The Knight's owner, the late Richard Harding, had a talent for finding new artists and persuading them to come to his club a for a few days or a week. He kept the admission down, generally no cover charge and a two drink minimum. The El from Chicago Avenue to Elmont was less than a buck, and ran all night. Two beers – well, two Falstaffs – was about five dollars. A pretty good deal on a weekend. Affordable to a scholarship law student.
