(1966) People Are Talking About the Cheetah Lounge

"People Are Talking About the Big Blast they had at the preview opening of Chicago's newest, biggest, and brassiest discotheque, Oliver Coquelin's and Bordon Stevenson's Cheetah. The North Side spa (located in the old Aragon Ballroom) was the scene of Windy City's gathering of the swinging society set, many attired in the weirdest Mod dress, the way out, 'with it' styles. They consumed oceans of enlivening beverage, munched tasty tidbits, and danced wildly to the hot beat of two rock bands."

From "Jet Magazine" November 3, 1966.
