This pre-tiki establishment had two locations -- this one in Chicago and a second one in Niles, Illinois. Joker Joe (Joe Siciliano?) is featured on all memorabilia, including matchbooks and postcards of that era and apparently liked to throw on a hula skirt and jump on top of the bar to do some impromptu dancing from time to time.

These locations were open as early as 1945, but exact opening and closing dates are unclear.

In addition to postcards, there are quite a few memento photos with printed paper sleeves that were sold by shutterbugs roaming through the bar at that time.

The bar's name was probably inspired by the 1940 film, Typhoon, starring Dorothy Lamour.
