172 S Washington
1930- 1960s. Known as one of the most gay welcoming establishments on the West Coast. Basement location below the Double Header. Café, pool hall and card room. Very popular with gay men and drag queens. Also known locally as Madame Peabody's Dancing Academy for Young Ladies. Same sex dancing was permitted here. Lesbians were also welcome. Became a diner in the late 60s. Design based on the lettering on the awning over the entrance.
