The Knitting Factory was a nightclub that was opened in New York City and that featured eclectic music and entertainment. It was founded by Michael Dorf and Louis Spitzer in 1987. The Knitting Factory was named by Dorf’s and Spitzer’s childhood friend Bob Appel and songwriter Jonathan Zarov, who derived the name through joking about Appel’s experience working in an actual knitting factory.
After opening in 1987, various other locations were opened in the United States. Dorf opened a new club location in Los Angeles in 2000 under the parent company of Knitting Factory Entertainment, KnitMedia.
