Saturday Night Dance Theme: Cocoanut Grove

The Cocoanut Grove was one of the most famous nightclubs in Los Angeles through the 1920’s and 1940’s. When it opened in 1921, the Cocoanut Grove instantly became a mecca for movie stars and star-gazers. The famous artificial palm trees which decorated the club’s interior were left over from Rudolph Valentino‘s 1921 move “The Sheik“. The Grove was virtually synonymous with Hollywood glamour – actresses such as Joan Crawford (“Mildred Pierce“), Carole Lombard (“My Man Godfrey“), and Loretta Young (“The Bishop’s Wife“) were reportedly discovered while dancing at the popular nightclub.
