Episode 3: La Dolce Vita

Vintage Los Angeles sent Aj Benza out on a special assignment to visit one of the greatest vintage Rat Pack style restaurants in the city called La Dolce Vita!! I can’t imagine anyone better than our former host from “Mysteries & Scandals” to bring back the latest on one of Frank Sinatra’s favorite spots! It’s been beautifully cared for and restored by owner Allesandro Uzieli.

Episode 2: A Cast of Caricatures

In our latest VLA-TV episode, we take you inside the Palm Restaurant’s West Hollywood location before their move to Beverly Hills. I’m sure many of you have been wondering what happened to all those legendary caricatures on the walls. Well, VLA was there to capture all the excitement with Angie Dickinson, Mamie Van Doren, Shecky Greene and many other dedicated customers!! We also reveal the back story of The Palm with owners, Bruce Bozzi, and Wally Ganzi! This is one of the most unique preservation stories in L.A. history!

Its whereabouts have been in question ever since. Vintage Los Angeles uncovers the original hotdog facade that was built in the 1940s and interviews its long-time owners The Blake Family in this exclusive mini-documentary, highlighting the colorful history and future of this lost Angeleno treasure.

I spent one night recording with her around ‘99, omg she had energy!

This picture was from an album cover. My parents had this album in their collection. I used to admire this pic as a kid. I thought she looked so elegant and sophisticated. RIP Nancy Wilson 🙏🏽

One of my favorite Christmas recordings. She was a treasure. m.youtube.com/watch?v=vJPmhKwMBD8

My jazz world just got a little bit darker. She always sang like an Angel, now she sings with them. 😢

Bravo...to The Lady Wilson and to Vintage Los Angeles!

Peter Falk was driving that cab.

One of my Dads favorite singers... I listened to many a Nancy Wilson Album in my youth. RIP Ms. Wilson

She had a glorious voice, and was such a beautiful, elegant, stylish lady. ♥️

Man, what a singer. I remember hearing her on the radio in L.A....KMPC. RIP....

Looks like a '59 Plymouth in matching yellow 😍

Look how clean the street was.

Another legend is gone. So sad 💔

I never heard of her, but she’s gorgeous.

What a beautiful photo of her. 🌟 May she rest in peace. ♥ 🙏

A class unto herself.

Love her dress, the color and matching shoes?

She looks so beautiful!

So beautiful and elegant!

RIP Nancy Wilson. Thank you for sharing your beautiful voice.

What a talent , what a doll . RIP .

The epitome of elegance and poise.

Those were the days! My Pop was in Hollywood in 1963!

I grew up watching my mom hang on Nancy Wilson’s smooth voice. Her music is always on my playlists. Especially her “Forbidden Lover” album.

Oh my gosh...I just shared this exact same photo a minute ago on my page. It seems to represent her elegance and beauty so well--and what a star she was! It's heartbreaking to lose her. She was truly special.

One of my mom’s favorite singers

She and Carmen MacRae were the best female jazz singers of their time, the golden age of jazz.

Terri Chow

Beautiful woman. Beautiful voice.

OMG! I didn't know she passed. I was at a party once where she sang 🙁

RIP

In 1964, I bought the 45 rpm recording of "How Glad I Am". I remember seeing that photo with the yellow, Plymouth cab in the background, which was on the cover of that record album.

My mom loved Nancy Wilson, guess I'll get out some of her old albums and remember the both of them

In the beginning I think in Nancy Willson of Heart .

💖💖💖

Pure and distinctive. What a lovely voice.

💖

An absolute legend. ❤️❤️❤️

Downloading everything Apple Music has on her - absolutely the epitome of class, sass, and MEGA talent.

Oh this one hurts. What a loss.
