Although the first advertising for the "Ten Hundred East" bar found is in the January 1973 issue of GPU News, reports are that this bar opened as early as 1968 or 1969.
Ten Hundred East was "the" bar to be in and be seen in by gay men, prior to the opening of the first Milwaukee gay mega-bar, the Factory.
The August 1976 issue of the local "GLIB Guide" describes the business as follows: "One of the longer lived bars has remodeled into brickwork motif. Neighborhood group, dancing."
More information about this business is welcomed from anyone who can contribute it.
