KING TUT'S TOMB, 4711 South Michigan Avenue

Another dine-and-dance place, situated under the ground. Said to be the hottest spot in town. Al Bentley's King Tut Syncopating Mummies, featuring Lee Collins, the jazz cornetist from New Orleans, provide music that would make a mummy come to life. Atmospheric and lots of fun. Kenwood 0800.




1931 - 1931
