Sammy's Bowery Follieswas an "alcoholic haven." The part-local dive always drew a huge mixed crowd. It was opened in 1934 at 267 Bowery by Sammy Fuchs, who branded it as the Stork Club of the Bowery. He welcomed everyone from vaudeville acts to "Bowery bums".That mix of patrons was key to Sammy’s success. Opened in 1934 at 267 Bowery between Houston and Stanton Streets, the dive attracted old-school bums as well as tourists, politicians, actors, and others slumming it for the night.
