L’Amour was a music venue in Brooklyn, New York, run by Mike and George Parente. L’Amour opened as a disco club in 1978, transformed into a rock club in 1981 and closed in February 2004. It was promoted as the “Rock Capitol of Brooklyn”. Commonly pronounced “La-Morz” by patrons, the venue hosted many of hard rock and heavy metal‘s biggest artists, including Iron Maiden, Kiss, Megadeth and Metallica, as well as frequently featuring underground bands from across the country and across the globe. The original L’Amour in Brooklyn remained a relevant part of the rock-metal scene for almost 25 years.
