From lapl.org:

Having a merry time at 3 o'clock in the morning, patrons of the 7566 Club at 7566 Melrose Avenue are shown at the bar when officers raided the place, one of four swank Hollywood night spots "pinched" by 50 police. In the four hot spots 17 men were nabbed, most accused of selling liquor without licenses. Photo dated: January 29, 1941.


What's also interesting to me is that that address, 7566 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, was where the erotica store Drake's used to be; it was there since at least the 1980s, and, sadly, closed some years ago... the internet has really changed things when it comes to porn, hasn't it. I believe the building is still vacant and up for lease. When I was 16-17 years old, that place fascinated me, and then finally when I turned 18 I bought my first porno mag there, hehe!
