Monte Proser's Beachcomber, Boston, 1940s
Monte Proser was one of the first night club impresario's to emulate Donn Beach's Don the Beachcomber concept, and he lifted the famous Zombie cocktail right along with it. Proser was largely responsible for introducing the Zombie to the east coast. He started with "Monte Proser's Zombie," a bar created for the New York Word's Fair in 1939. Based on that success, he opened Monte Proser's Beachcomber in 1940 in a space above the Winter Garden Theatre in Times Square. Proser's chain included locations in Miami Beach, Florida, Boston, Massachusetts, Baltimore, Maryland and Providence, Rhode Island.
