This article is about the former nightclub on Morris Avenue. For the former restaurant in Trussville see Crazy Horse Restaurant.

The Crazy Horse, originally The Gas-Lite and Spiro's Gaslight Club, later Bob Cain's Club, Andy's Crazy Horse Club, The Gaslite, Dillinger's and The Cobblestone, was a nightclub with live music located at 2120–2122 Morris Avenue in the 1960s and 1970s.

Andrew Tsimpides was a co-owner of "The Crazy Horse" in the late 1960s. In 1968 he advertised the club as "The Original Underground Birmingham" and booked regional bands like The Tams and Jimmy Clanton.

He restored the older name, "The Gaslite", in 1973 as he remodeled for a more "plush" atmosphere, and transitioned away from rock bands to novelty and nostalgia acts like Wayne Cochran, Tiny Tim, the Righteous Brothers, the Buck Ram Platters, The Seoul Sisters, and the Diamonds.

By the late 1970s, the club, then called "The Cobblestone", was known for its late-night dancing.
