Interior Of Ciro’s nightclub, West Hollywood, 1950

Interior Of Ciro's nightclub, West Hollywood, 1950Interior shots of nightclubs are surprisingly rare. When the celebrity crowd went out, they wanted to be able to let their hair down—i.e. get a bit tipsy without having to worry if some photographer was going to capture them at their worst. People like that appreciated nightclub owners who kept photographers at bay. They worked long, hard hours and wanted to make the most of their off-hours. But it means that photos showing us what these places looked like—in this case Ciro’s on the Sunset Strip in 1950—can be few and far between. I would imagine these rear banquettes were popular as you could take in the whole room.
