Demolished in 1964, the Cedar Tavern was a nondescript neighborhood bar on the west side of University Place, a few doors up from 8th Street. In the 1950s it became the favorite hangout of major artists of the decade. Among the regulars were Jackson Pollack, William deKooning and Franz Kline. They were in turn joined by such literary figures as Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and Frank O’Hara.
