Street:533 Pacific Street
This is another one of the Pre-Tiki bars that used the name "The Hurricane", presumably modeled after the popular South Seas movie of the same name staring Dorthy Lamour and Jon Hall. This one was owned by Burt Rovere.
I have this menu from the bar.
The lure of the Tropics indeed.
Some the the tropical drinks, some different names here.
The food choices, and the Rum of the house ... Ronrico.
Looks like Burt had a few other restaurants as well.
I grabbed images of this matchbook that shows the bamboo exterior. Anybody heard of the "International Settlement" before? The address changed from 533 Pacfic Street on the menu to 535 Pacific Avenue on the matchbook, hmmm.
Finally here is a napkin I tried for on ebay. They changed the look of the logo wahinee, going tropical and topless!
