Factoids

  • Built c.1866 by Peter Schamine, a cobbler. Peter lived in and ran his shoemaking and repair business out of the building until about 1900.

  • From 1914 into the 1950s, 666 South Avenue was the home of the South Avenue Candy Kitchen.

  • Lux Lounge has been here since 2002. When the current owner purchased the building, it was a gutted shell.

  • Karrie, the owner of Lux, first stepped inside the building in the 1980s when it was the Snake Sisters Cafe, a lesbian bar and cafe, and she was going to a sweet 16 birthday party. She immediately fell in love with it and said that someday it would be hers.

  • Resident kitties, Trigger and Mustachio (pictured below), occupy the second floor.
