Our salon takes its name from a chain of Burlesque theatres which were owned and run by the Minsky brothers in prohibition-era New York (1912-1937). The name "Minsky's" is actually derived from a chain of Burlesque theatres. After attempting to run respectable shows (but failing miserably), unexpected success came when a performer absent-mindedly removed her stage costume before she had fully exited the stage. The cheers that followed convinced the brothers to make the faux pas a regular part of their show, and from then on the girls were instructed to do this each night, to the delight of the audience. The club's growing reputation meant it was the object of intense police activity and one particularly notable episode has been immortalised in the film "The Night They Raided Minsky's" starring Norman Wisdom and Britt Ekland. You can read more about the Minsky brothers' story using the links below.
