The Ravenite Social Club was an Italian American heritage club and espresso bar in Little Italy, New York City, an area once known for its large population of Italian Americans, that was used as a criminal headquarters. The club was founded in 1926 first as the Alto Knights Social Club, it later became a hangout for Charlie Luciano and others. The Alto Knights name was derived from the Order of Saint James of Altopascio. In 1957 when Carlo Gambino took over, he renamed the club "The Ravenite" in honor of his favorite poem by Edgar Allan Poe, "The Raven".
