The Hurricane was a pre-tiki bar & nightclub located in the International Settlement section of San Francisco during the 1940s-50s.
The place had some amazing murals, tons of bamboo, thatched roofs, tapa cloth, and featured some of the earliest ever cocktail mugs -- including skulls (similar to those made by Tepco for Trader Vic's) with naked women on them.
Before International Settlement days, the street’s first incarnation was the "Barbary Coast", famed center of Gold Rush debauchery and vice. The 1906 earthquake demolished most of it, bringing an abrupt end to that chapter. Just before Prohibition, the area was known as "Terrific Street". "International Settlement" was the block’s exotic name from the late 1930s to its decline in the late 1950s. Jazz music, tropical clubs, and leggy stage shows were the style of the time, themes aimed at attracting sailors passing through town. The result was a potent mixture of glamour and grit.
