The Ebony Lounge was located in the basement of the Hotel Chesterfield. Alonzo Kittrels of the Philadelphia Tribune reminisced:
[T]he Chesterfield Hotel, a landmark that deserves its own back-in-the-day column, given its significance in the lives of Black people. It was particularly important in the lives of the performers at the nearby Uptown Theater. This hotel was where many performers stayed while appearing at this venue.
