Garden of Allah, Aerial View…

27 Mar

View is South-southeast, across Sunset Blvd. The tall white building in the upper right corner is still standing.

Within walking distance from The Garden were; Ciro's, the Mocambo, the Trocadero, La Rue, the Players, and of course Schwab's Drugstore, just across Crescent Heights.

 In its heyday 'The Garden' was home to, amongst many others; Robert Benchley, Ernest Hemmingway, Gloria Stuart, the Marx brothers,
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sheilah Graham (author of a magnificent book, “The Garden of Allah” Crown Publishing 1970) Dorothy Parker, Errol Flynn, Greta Garbo, and Humphrey Bogart. It was torn down in June 1959. In attendance was Francis X. Bushman, famed for the silent “Ben Hur.” He and his wife Iva had attended the opening party as well. It is now a pink strip mall with a MacDonald's, a Subway Sandwich Shop, and a pizza place – but no bar.
