The Brown Derby, Hollywood, 1950
The Brown Derby at 1628 North Vine Street in Hollywood was the second Brown Derby to open but quickly became the most famous and the place to see and be seen due to its proximity to the major movie studios. It made its debut on Valentine's Day 1929 and was open 24 hours a day. The Hollywood Brown Derby was the preferred hang out for the gossip columnists (they and the movie executives loved the innovation of tableside phones) and late nights turned into an unofficial club for Hollywood's elite. "Producer Darryl Zanuck holding court, his dog tied up outside, while a drunk John Barrymore gobbled down the Derby's famous hot cakes with sausage."
