  1. I pass this building every day, but wouldn’t have guessed it’s previous incarnation. Now it’s a bar and strip club:

  2. Barbur Blvd., it was a popular dinner club in the 60’s, they had a stage for live music also, my parents used to host company dinners there, we always had a good time.

  3. I don’t have an answer to you, but perhaps as the Kiwanis met there, someone may have a list of period clubs that could be checked?

  4. My guess without looking anything up would be Barbur blvd. because of the drop off on the right of the photo.

  5. Here’s a view of that area from above from a few year’s earlier, in 1952. The 3 Star restaurant is in the upper left.

  6. And commenters who lived in the area identified the 3 Star restaurant as being in the same building as “The Turquoise Room” (at least in 1952)

  7. Barbur Blvd. in Southwest Portland. Great restaurant, great floor show, exciting blinking stars the used to blink in sequence so you couldn’t miss it if you were cruising Barbur at night.

  8. 3star looking ne to Capitol and 19th intersection had good burgers. Vick & Okees

  9. This picture is of the 3-Star restaurant on SW Barbur Blvd. The Turquoise Room was a little further to the south, up near SW 34th, which I believe had the dance floor with the swimming pool underneath, owned by Ernie Piluso.

  10. Looks like Barbur Blvd facing west

  11. I would confirm the address of 8343 SW Barbur Blvd.
    And Pulaski’s Turquoise Roon was at 9847 SW Barbur Blvd., at least in 1959.
