VENUE AMENITIES
UNION is a two-floor, eight-room venue equipped with Function-One Sound, full lighting/video production, air conditioning, six bars, ample restrooms, ample seating and a massive outdoor smoking patio with a kitchen that will all be running the duration of the event. We're also coordinating a marketplace for community vendors that we'll be announcing closer to the event, so stay tuned.

On-site parking is available on a first come, first serve basis (three separate lots, behind, next to and across the street from UNION). Street parking is available as well. Due to the size and scope of the event, we do recommend taking Uber of Lyft to avoid parking issue.

The event will start at 7PM on Friday, September 21st and continue until Sunday afternoon/early evening depending on attendance (minimum 40 hours straight). We will be allowing in-and-out privileges, but know that there could be long re-entry lines during peak hours (10PM to 3AM). Due to the level of amenities at the venue, we are doing everything within our power to make sure all FAMILY FUNKTION attendees are comfortable, entertained and engaged; start to finish.

VENUE HISTORY
Jewel’s Catch One was the oldest Black owned disco in America thanks to owner Jewel Thais-Williams, who stood up against hate and discrimination for 42 years. The story of Jewel and “The Catch” is one of four decades of music, fashion, celebrity, and activism that helped change the course of Los Angeles by breaking down racial, social, and cultural barriers. One of the original safe spaces for both the LGBTQ and Black communities, Jewel’s Catch One also served as a refuge for many during the AIDS crisis. As Jewel's club grew to become known as the «unofficial Studio 54 of the West Coast,” Jewel became a national role model for how to fight discrimination and serve the less fortunate. When it opened in 1973, the club was one of the first black discos in the United States, and was for a long time the major black gay bar in Los Angeles. When the club opened it became a hub for a diverse population of performers including Sylvester, Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross, Janet Jackson, Donna Summer, Whoopi Goldberg, Rick James and Madonna.

In 2018 Ava Duvernay bought the rights to and sold the Jewel's Catch One Documentary to Netflix. If you haven't watched the film, it's an excellent story that offers deeper insight into the venue and Jewel herself http://jewelscatchonedocumentary.com
