The Chateau Liberte’ was a rustic mountain nightclub and hippie commune in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
The Chateau Liberte’ was operated in part by The Gypsy Jokers and Hells Angels motorcycle clubs. There were dozens of people living on the 72 acre property in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Many famous rock bands performed at The Chateau Liberte’ including the Doobie Brothers, The Tubes, Hot Tuna, Moby Grape, Sons of Champlin, Kingfish, Jerry Garcia, Tower of Power, Timbercreek and many more.
The structure was first built in 1865 and was the stagecoach stop between San Jose and Santa Cruz, California. It went through many changes and had many names as a speakeasy during prohibition and a bordello before it was called The Chateau Liberte’.
Director W.J. McKay of Goth Mountain Films is producing a feature length documentary film on the Chateau Liberte’ and this preview is a twenty minute long sample of the film.
