Hollywood and Vine

During Hollywood's Golden Age, Hollywood and Vine was home to many of the most famous nightclubs, theaters and restaurants. Celebriteis danced the night away at the Brown Derby, Sardi's, Clara Bow's "It" Cafe, and Al Levy's tavern. They met their fans for breakfast at Tom Breneman's a resturant from which live interviews were broadcast on national radio. Movies live performances and radio shows could be experienced at the Palaco, the Vine Street Theatre (now the Doolittle) and the Pantages.

The "skyscrapers" at Hollywood and Vine are symbols of the importance of the intersection in the Golden Age of Hollywood. As support facilities of the entertainment industry in finance and commerce, such ornate editices as the Equitable Building, the Taft Building and the B.H. Dvas Building contributed to the image of Hollywood Boulevard as the "style center of the world." The buildings at Hollywood and Vine have appeared in countless motion pictures and television productions from the 1920's to the present.
