Club Cafe Society

Hi ethereal_reality,

I just came across the top photo in a different archive with the caption:

"Before this entrance to the swank Club Cafe Society in the heart of the Sunset Strip, 400 club "members" in their fashionable evening gowns and full dress watched as officers broke in the club and arrested eight men in an early morning raid. The eight were held on charges of selling liquor without a license. Photo dated: January 10, 1942.

No exact address but at least we have heart of Sunset Strip!

This very noirsh looking nightclub was unknown to me until I came across these two photos in the Los Angeles Public Library Collection.


above: Interior of the private club Cafe Society at 4 A.M. in 1941.

Does anyone know the street address?
