“Vintage Los Angeles” has launched an exciting new channel with all original content!

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!

Episode 1: Tail O’ The Pup

VLA’s web series premieres with a feature on the beloved Los Angeles roadside eatery “Tail O’ The Pup” which mysteriously disappeared from the streets of West Hollywood nearly a decade ago. 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.

VLA is at the The Dresden

Some of my favorite times were hanging out at the @the.dresden Room watching Marty and Elayne perform in the 90s. I remember Jon Favreau holding a handheld camera capturing scenes for SWINGERS. We had no idea at the time Swingers would become such a classic. Popped by tonight and it’s so nice to know nothing has changed. It’s so “MONEY”.

We were there last weekend! Love Marty and Elaine!

Love it! Enjoy! 🙂

I love the look of the Dresden, those white booths! Have a great dinner. are you stopping by the lounge?

Hey, we've been there, Michael Andres Palmieri!

Home to Marty and Elaine, lounge singer duo couple par excellence! Good friend of mine used to be on the door of the Dresden in the Nineties, many happy nights spent there as a result. One night a water line or tap blew behind the bar, there was a virtual lake in the well. One of the older bartenders was yelling out "My feet are wet, my shoes are wet, even my BALLS are wet!"... patrons in hysterics!

The Dresden. Twin Peaks. Sherilyn Fenn. My time.

Let’s Hang out there sometime. !!! Marty and Elaine !

My fave haunt since the 80s

Oh, look at your special plates!

Are Marty & Elaine still there?

VLA is in da house!

I remember a couple that performed there. The wife sung and hubby played piano-they were super retro back in the 90’s when I used to go there with my fellow co-workers at Hotel Bel Air!

When you go to Dresden, its not for ski lodge decor, or even the drinks. Its for Marty&Elaine~the real 'Class Act'! Have not been there in a while, but Elaine was singing La Vida Loca! I have a pic w Marty. Good times 90s

My dear sweet Gladys Davis that owned the Cameo Room loved going to The Dresden.

Miss that place. Love Marty & Elaine!

Loving the Midnight Express Benz..

I like your custom license plate(s) Alison. Cheers!
