Mr. Hospitality announces ‘A Night at Sahara’ at El Tucán, a Pride-month dinner party pop-up to celebrate the life and legacy of Leslie Cohen and her legendary New York City nightclub, Sahara. Notably, the first bar in New York City-owned and operated by women for women, Sahara was also the first upscale women’s club that showcased women in art, politics, and music.

“Sahara represented a milestone along the arduous and ongoing road to gay and lesbian liberation, a turning point between the representation of gay people as perverse and sick to the beginning of acceptance and inclusion.” – Leslie Cohen (1947 – 2022)
