Undated postcard of the Ambassador’s Cocoanut Grove nightclub, Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles

Undated postcard of the Ambassador's Cocoanut Grove nightclub, Los AngelesI don’t have a date for this postcard of the Ambassador’s Cocoanut Grove nightclub, but it looks to me like it was taken at the peak of its popularity, which was the 1920s or maybe the 30s. the Cocoanut Grove opened in 1921 and remained very popular until the nightclubs along the Sunset Strip took off in the 40s. I love the detailing in the walls above the columns, as well as that glorious light fixture!

    I have three memories of the Cocoanut Grove. My family was close friends with Hal Borne, a well known music arranger for Tony Martin and others. He invited us to come to one of Martin’s performances. I was 10 at the time. My mother, ever the grandstander, told me to blow a kiss and I was brought on stage and serenaded. My second memory was when we went to see Eddy Fisher perform. When the lights went up he was standing right next to me. My third memory was in 1967 (I think) when a girlfriend and I went to see the Supremes perform. My friend was very star struck and being from New York she was pushy so she got us backstage. We were outside their dressing room listening while Diana Ross loudly berated her co-singers. When they came out she breezed right past us but the other two were very gracious and gave my friend autographs.
