FIRE at 1710 N. Las Palmas, home of the "ultra-ultra" Swing Club, 1937.

Damage to the Swing Club interior.

...not exactly ultra-ultra. -that portrait looks like Myrna Loy.


Here is 1710 N. Las Palmas today. (Hollywood Boulevard is off to the right)

Today it is the Premier Supper Club, and there are still noirish going-ons. A patron was shot and killed in front of the club on March 30, 2014.

I read through comments (mostly negative) on the club. http://www.yelp.com/biz/premiere-sup...ub-los-angeles
I was a bit confused when several patrons mentioned a second story overlooking the dance floor in the back, but from the street the building is obviously one-story.

By looking at the aerial below, I believe the dance floor might be in a different building altogether. Could the Premier Supper Club dance floor be located in the Vogue Theater building?
I find that pretty interesting. (interesting to me anyway)
