A pioneer in the revival of 42nd Street since 1986,
Chez Josephine is a bubbly return to the

A tribute to Josephine Baker
"the most successful music hall performer ever to take the stage."
(Ebony Magazine)

Josephine Baker adopted 12 children of different races;
referring to them as her "Rainbow Tribe".
Jean-Claude, is the 13th of her adopted children.

. . . Continuing the family tradition . . .
at any time, including holidays, you can experience
what owner and host, Jean-Claude Baker refers to as his
"Cocktail of Human Beings"
. . . a medley of . . .
celebrities, local color, and a loyal and devoted

unforgettable evening on the town.

With Jean-Claude Baker your ultimate host!!!!

A New York City treasure!!!!
