22 St Paul Street East, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Aug. 1968 – 1981
The Black Bottom reopened in 1968 on St. Paul St. In Old Montreal, cementing its place as a jazz mecca with owner Charles Burke’s old friend Miles Davis playing in late 68 and Duke Ellington shortly after. Its soul kitchen continued to serve chicken and ribs.
Through the 1970s, the venue also occasionally hosted funk, soul, dance and even some rock bands along with the jazzmen until it closed at the start of the 1980s.
