The night is me

Henri Donnadieu

Publisher: planet

It was the night of January 23, 1977. Calle Londres 156, in the Zona Rosa, she dressed in stoles, sequins, and high heels. All they went to what would be the first gay and rock club in Mexico. The assistants they were expectant: an oasis of freedom in nightlife was about to be born. Who planned it?

It was Henri Donnadieu, the Producer of the Night, a extravagant Frenchman who liked to live without rules and without limits. I know trained as a military parachutist in France, studied at the Sorbonne, organized the first cabaret company in Mexico, survived three attacks. But his masterstroke was missing: he created the mythical Disco Bar on the 9th, which summoned the most unique clientele: Café Tacvba, Caifanes and Maldita Vecindad began their race here; there was no lack of visits from Carlos Monsiváis, Pita Amor and María Felix. And the night was no less amazing if Silvia Pinal arrived, Sylvester Stallone and Sean Connery.

Without planning it, Henri made the night his home and 9, one of the most important cultural icons of the eighties.
