The Original Mother’s

Founded in 1968, Mother’s has cemented itself as an iconic nightclub and live music venue that has seen some of the most influential bands of the 60’s and 70’s on its stage including Cream, The Velvet Underground, Chicago, The Mekons, and other milestone bands. Mother’s was also one of the original venues to host house music artists, and has also been featured in several movies including the 1986 classic, “About Last Night,” with Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, and Jim Belushi. In recent years, Mother’s celebrated its 50-year anniversary with an “I Love the 90’s Tour” featuring artists Vanilla Ice, Rob Base, Young MC, and Tone Loc.

Mother’s dance floor— the oldest and largest on Division street— is the place to gather every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. We’ll see you on the dance floor!
