4th of July at the Clifton’s, Los Angeles

668

Clifton’s, a four storey venue, with at least one bar on each floor, is known for its cafeteria. Today it is a dining, entertainment and social gathering center in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, California.

Clifton’s, California’s lone survivor from the Golden Age of Cafeterias, once more redefines the dining experience while celebrating California’s diverse natural and cultural legacy within its legendary forest themed environment.

Clifton’s, the culmination of five generations of dining innovation, started a new tradition last year, celebrating the 4th of July with the 40’s theme of Hollywood and entertainment characters, such as Bette Davis, Ginger Rogers, The Andrews Sisters, Clark Gable and others, performing song and dance.

For the special event on 4th of July, many people in the audience dress up in 1940s style. The ambiance is electric and amazing. The venue is part of Los Angeles’ living history, in this most elegant space. On entering, one is immediately reminded of the parlors and museums of a previous century, with spectacular artifacts.

Take part in the land of adventure and dreams – the spirit of California.

Clinfton’s is located at 648 S. Broadway Los Angeles CA 90014, phone 213 627 1673.
