16 Easter Eggs You Probably Didn’t Notice In The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The Gaslight Café Really Existed
The Greenwich Village coffee shop Midge and Joel Maisel go to when they want to get downtown (or, if you’re Midge, have a hilarious nudist breakdown on stage) really existed. The Gaslight Cafe was also known as the Village Gaslight. It was one of the first places Bob Dylan ever played, and he later recorded a live album there in 1962. The Gaslight was featured in Mad Men and Inside Llewyn Davis, and it was the site of a sit-in by Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton with John Hammond Jr. It’s not surprising that the Maisels had fantastic taste.
