Club Casanova, 8383 Sunset Boulevard, 1936.

Club Casanova, 8383 Sunset Boulevard, 1936.Club Casanova opened at 8383 Sunset Boulevard in August 1936. I don’t know how classy it was, but they went to the trouble of putting twin topiaries outside the front door, so it must have been at least half classy. Unfortunately though, it only lasted 16 months so guess it wasn’t classy enough to last on the Sunset Strip. In 1937, it became U-Gene’s Bagdad Café, then two years later, Bow’s Inn. Clearly, the lesson is: if you’re going to open a nightclub on the Sunset Strip, you’ll be playing in the big boy’s sandbox—you need to go big, or go home.
