"The Nickel Bar is a disco bar, open every evening except Monday, from ten to four in the morning. Located on the border of the black district, it was once exclusively reserved for blacks. And then, with the appearance of acrobatic dances, of which the Nickel Bar was very quickly the consecrated territory, we could not refuse entry to non-black specialists who claimed to measure themselves against the usual clientele. There was even a moment when, because of its competitions and its demonstrations, the Nickel Bar almost became a fashionable place, and some posh people risked two or three times on the spot, to be able to boast about it later. But it never became a fashionable place, for the simple reason that the owner has always refused to install air conditioning; in all seasons, the indoor temperature rises from thirty degrees in the early evening, to fifty degrees in the early morning; three large fans brew softly t look humid and scorching, and there’s not even a locker room where you can leave your clothes. "
