  1. juke house

    A Juke House, often called a Jook House, is a type of establishment that was popular in the southeastern United States, particularly among African American communities, from the end of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th century. These places were considered informal spaces where people could gather for music, dancing, gambling, drinking, and socializing. The term "juke" or "jook" is believed to have originated from the Gullah word "joog" or "jug", meaning rowdy or disorderly.
