The Jekyll & Hyde Club on Sixth Avenue is dead and gone. Thank God. Hate-hate-HATED that tacky, touristy pile of bricks. An eyesore of Las Vegas proportions.
But a reader sent me the below picture as a reminder of what used to be there. I had no idea. I know in its own way, the facade of The Magic Pan is as ugly as the Jekyll & Hyde Club. But there's something about that chain that charms me. Nothing quite says New York in the 1970s like The Magic Pan.
