I am interested in finding out more of the history of a New York nightclub called "The Tough Club". It was located at 243 West 14th Street. Sometime before April, 2003 it was transformed into a restaurant called "Kloe".
A review of the restaurant in the April 16, 2003 issue of the New York Times says that "The Tough Club" dates back to 1865.
I would like to know the exact date the club opened and closed, if possible. Also, any interesting anecdotes or historical tidbits about the club would be welcome.
Thank you very much in advance for your help!
