Here's a souvenir menu which the seller dates at 1946.


And a 1940s souvenir photograph.


I also found information about clubs/restaurants with the same name and from the same era in New York and San Francisco. I don't know if there was any connection between them.

15513 South Western Avenue, Gardena now appears to be the parking lot/forecourt of a Honda dealership.
