Very hard to find! An original Full Size Dinner & Wine List menu from the Domino Club in San Francisco, California!
"World Famous for Cuisine, Gloria, and a Galaxy of Paintings"
According to “San Francisco’s Lost Landmarks,” by James R. Smith, the Domino Club opened at some point soon after the 1939 World’s Fair closed, was owned by Charlie Anderson and was located at 25 Trinity Place in San Francisco’s Financial District. The club/restaurant provided live entertainment, dinner shows and also famously featured Anderson’s collection of nude paintings.
Of particular interest, Smith wrote, was that there was frequently a nude woman posing in the club for Roberto Lupetti, “a well-respected Italian born painter. Patrons could eat or drink and watch Lupetti create another masterpiece.”
A painting from the World’s Fair called “Gloria,” by Fox Studios set designer and pin-up painter Irving Sinclair, was featured “prominently above the bar,” which led to the phrase “Meet me at Gloria’s,” rather than directly referring to the club by name.
The club closed in the late 1970s.
