Wikipedia Kinetic Playground

The Kinetic Playground was opened by entertainment businessman Aaron Russo at age 25. The club was originally called Electric Theater but Russo was sued by the owners of New York's Electric Circus and changed the club's name a few months after opening.

The venue was closed after being badly damaged by a fire. It is not related to the Kinetic Playground venue currently (2008) operating in Chicago.
