In her lavishly illustrated book Nightclub Nights: Art, Legend and Style 1920-1960, Susan Waggoner chronicles the golden age of American clubs. It wasn’t enough for a club to be merely a club, writes Waggoner. It had to have a theme, above average food at below average prices, liquor flowing like water, the illusion of sex, elephants and, if possible, a pool lapping the first tier of tables. The more exotic or tropical the better, which explains names like Zanzibar, Copacabana, El Morocco and Tropicana.

For the first time ever, Nightclub Nights opens the door to that glamorous, colorful, and vanished world. Rich with color, style, and atmosphere, Nightclub Nights is the next best thing to a table for two at the Copa. Using gorgeous, riotously colored authentic programs, menus, and period photography, author Susan Waggoner brings the nightclub back to sizzling life-from celebrity sanctuaries like Sherman Billingsley’s Stork Club, where the rope line was invented, to the Latin beat of the Tropicana and the Chinese flair of Khubla Khan’s.

A good book, for those who LIVED the time and the ERA... before the Internet and other miscellaneous home entertainments were invented...Those were the days of heavy drinkers and heavy smokers... The book -- could have been longer -- guides us along the "watering holes" (as they were called) of the times, always with a "show" of pretty girls. Yes, those were the days! All gone now,

What a fabulous way to study and retain the history that is America! I wasn't born yet but I can somehow relate with a smile on my face. A great read and so entertaining you wish they had made a big screen tv production out of all the clubs that were listed. And what fabulous art work by using the restaurant menus and ads. So much better then those of today!

A handsomely bound book with lots of colour and a real feeling of nostalgia throughout. I thought the book was well set up for easy reading and the enclosed anecdotes were usually charming and interesting. Some very sharp looking sepia-toned photos throughout the book along with colorful graphics and photos. Nice reproduced images of the various clubs' promotional material as well. I would have myself liked to see more photos of the people who worked in these establishments in "action" so to speak. Meaning, photos of flashy bartenders mixing up a martini, or beautiful cigarette girls, or a waiter with a tray full of fancy drinks, etc. I would have also liked to know what ever happened to the clubs themselves after they closed. Were they bulldozed? Do some still exist albeit in another form? However, the book is one of the few tributes in printed form to the period of the luxurious dinner clubs and night clubs of the first half of the 20th century. That alone makes it a must have for enthusiasts of the long gone cocktail "set". I was in the club industry for most of my working years, so I do know a little of the lifestlye! Wish I could have been around the "French Casino" or the "Cocoanut Grove" back in the heyday. It looked like a marvelous time to be alive in America and enjoy the true meaning of "a night on the town".

This book is a beautiful look at the night club era of pre-disco.
When getting a table in a nightclub meant something. My heart is saddened that I came too late to see this era of true entertainment and deco design. It must have been magical. Some beautiful images, color graphics, and type from the era.
Hardback is linen.
