Club DeLisa

5516 S. State St.

Also known as the New Club De Lisa and the Unusual Revue, the Club DeLisa was one of Chicago’s most famous “black and tans,” interracial clubs that flourished in vice districts during the Jim Crow era. The venue was open for 25 years spanning the depression era and late 1950s. After its original location burned down, brothers Jimmy and Mike opened up the new venue. Jimmy and Mike De Lisa were brothers who ran it.
