Former Location –
The Chateau Liberte was a legendary rock & roll bar in the Santa Cruz mountains. It was an old stagecoach stop in the mid 19th century. Many bands from the Bay Area played here including Hot Tuna, NRPS, and members of Moby Grape.

The cover of the first Doobie Brothers album was photographed in the bar and the Doobie’s were regulars here before they hit it big with Manager Bruce Cohn at the helm.
