The Purple Onion, San Francisco

The Purple Onion was opened in 1952, at 140 Columbus Avenue in San Francisco, and became a famous folk music and comedy venue in the 1950's, 1960's and onwards. In the 1990's the club became a garage rock venue. The Purple Onion closed at the end of the 1990's but reopened in the mid-2000's as a comedy club.

Though comedy albums recorded at the Purple Onion have been released it appears that there are no official releases that include live music from the club.
