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.

Yeah, leave it to us to demolish such a beautiful building. We seem to do it over and over.

Isn’t there a scene from “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice” in there?

Why does this city allow such unique treasures to be razed? I’ll never understand the lack of appreciation for architectural history.

Sad....would’ve been great fun to go there and hang out.

I was there and it was wonderful! Thanks so much for posting it and bringing a magical experience back to life. ♥️

Wow!! Looks like it was quite the place to see and be seen!

My parents favorite restaurant !!

Loved dinners here with my family!

Made the cover of LIFE. Looks like medieval times... where's the jousting, horsemanship & falconry plus a 4-course, utensil-free meal served in a castle-like space.

Wow never heard of that place. Looks great.

were exactly was this place located? looks a little middle eastern.

I wonder if the Club in St Tropez is an homage~ why was building demolished?Looks beautiful.

Freakin Beautiful!!!!

Why of course it was ! 😡

OMG This place lookalike a Medieval English Manor, k'mon this could of been stupid to demolish it in these current times. It should of marked as a historical location.

KROQ owner had a club there back in the day

Looks like a really cool place.

Any old pics. of the Playboy Club in Chicago =was there and never took a photo.

Why can’t some of these amazing places just survive .. what is the need to keep destroying the history ?

I just saw this and realized that's where I worked from 2003 - 2011... that was part of the Maimonides middle school library. Wow... (Hi, Mindy Sroka Donna Held Nancy Kolitz Schiff)

I wonder if Arnaz ever performed there?

What was it between caves des Roy and when it was demolished? Storage? Abandoned?

How cool

What a world it used to be!

Wow, very cool.
