Le Boeuf sur le Toit by Jean Hugo
From page 348: Le Boeuf sur le Toit was, despite its Dada-esque name, a bar with hot jazz and a wide mix of patrons.
Dada began during the Great War, an artistic expression of the theme, “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more!” Dada art was the refusal of art; Dada writing was an aggressive dismissal of any literary norms. By the mid-Twenties, Dada had given way to Surrealism. In the process it lost much of its fury, if none of its embrace of the nonsensical–such as a cabaret named The Ox on the Roof.
