Journalist Nick Pappas explores in detail the social and economic dimensions of Greek club and restaurant presentations in New York during the 1980s in “Bouzouki and Belly Dancers, Drinkers and Dreamers: A Look at Greek Nightlife at the Crossroads.” The author examines clubs like the Grecian Cave, which attract recent, working-class Greek immigrants. He contrasts them with more financially successful, upscale Greek supper clubs in Manhattan that appeal to celebrities and a more affluent clientele that largely non-Greek.He also profiles the men and women operating the clubs, who work with a product the component parts of which are Greek history, food, music, dance, hospitality, and other ephemeral qualities that give their product its appeal.
