Another example of the pre-tiki Tropical Polynesian nightclubs from the 1930's. Also a great example of how drinks, names, and gimmicks were copied all across the US. Just as Beachcomber, Zombie, and Trader 'Fill in the Blank' Bars proliferated across the country, so apparently did the 'Seven Seas' name together with the 'Rain on the Roof'. The other example being the '7 Seas' in Hollywood also known for it's 'Rain on the Roof'. Hard to tell if one copied the other or if the '7 Seas' traveled from San Francisco to Hollywood.

Scored this napkin at the paper show from the 7 Seas in San Francisco.
Rain on the roof! Didn't Don invent that?
