Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert (as Fat City) opened for John Denver in December 1970. Late one night, Denver helped finish writing a song that Danoff and Nivert had started. They debuted "Take Me Home, Country Roads" on December 30, 1970. In a January 31, 1981 Washington Post newspaper article, Richard Harrington wrote that the Georgetown club which helped promote the careers such stars as Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, John Denver, Richard Pryor, Neil Young and Jackson Browne, was sold the previous day for an undisclosed sum to Paul Kurtz and Howard Bomstein from Washington, D.C. Ultimately, the club was closed down by the DC fire marshal after numerous warnings. It had been licensed for 163 seats, but was found to have more than 200 people SRO at times. Also, the books for liquor sales were allegedly being done improperly, so instead of making money, a fair amount of money was being lost, unbeknownst to the club owners.

The Cellar Door, Katy Reviews - Write a Review

  • I really like this restaurant! It has great ambience and wonderful menu. You will be surprise by how low key it looks compare to the food taste and the service. Also, the wine is fairly priced. I asked for ketchup and before the person I asked was back in the kitchen, someone else was bringing it to me. Also, the truffle oil fries ARE INSANE

  • A Spanish guitarist playing live music during their week featuring Spanish wines. Check! Knowledgeable waiter describing wines with words I️ can neither pronounce much less define. Check! The kind of food that is so good it makes you cry a little. Check! My wife and I️ come here frequently on date night and it is always top notch. This place makes Perry’s look like McDonalds.
