Willie’s Lounge

Another iconic, and legendary spot was Willie’s Lounge. It was located on 125th Street, one block from the Apollo Theater between 8th Avenue and St Nicholas Avenue. Willie’s lounge was lit from Monday to Sunday every week. Willie’s Lounge had two well-known DJs, one by the name of DJ Double J who is still doing his thing throughout the Tri-State area, and also (RIP) DJ Starchild. If you were someone who loved Harlem’s nightlife, enjoyed listening to good music, meeting new people, getting a drink made by the hottest barmaids in Harlem, NYC, and getting your dance on, then this was the spot for you back in the ’80s!
