Well, obviously I'm partial to this place. I imagine this one might predate much of the PolyPop movement, but it's a great matchbook. Anyone know anything about this place?

excellent find! know nothing about the place. all i can add is that paterson is notorious for being a very very rough town.


Here's a postcard from Martin's Hawaiian Paradise:

Seems like it was a busy place with 2 orchestras and 3 floor shows nightly. I wish there was more info on this spot, as well. That's a great matchbook !
