Help me remember the name of a bar

Postby Jademan7 » Sun Dec 11, 2011 7:22 pm

This bar was across University Ave. from what is now Wando's, used to be the 602 Club. It was then demolished to become a parking lot. This would have been in the early 70's. I thought it was something like 2 guys names. Joe & Mike's or something. Please help.

Bob and Gene's?

(Googled:
602 club "across the street" madison
and got that from the first result)

Bob and Gene's was the last one standing over there, but when the block was intact there were others -- I think old Lorenzo's and another one I want to call the Paradise but that's slightly off. Original Genna's was also in the 600 block.

I feel like old Lorenzo's had a later reincarnation over on Gilman St but all this is foggy being about 40 year ago. There were a bunch more bars on the 700 block, south side, if Bob and Gene's isn't the one you're looking for.

Geez, what's this? A Facebook page for Bob and Gene's -- not much, but it's got a few pictures:
