Chicago, Illinois, United States
This pre-tiki establishment was open at least as early as 1945. Before this, in 1943, it was home to the Rose Bowl.
Hy Ginnis, the original host, died in 1955. Art Adler took over soon after.
It was located on Chicago's Rush Street which was quite notorious at the time for gambling, prostitution, and all sorts of debauchery.
The exterior was marked by huge neon vertical letters spelling out "TRADE WINDS".
By the 1960s, this location housed the Whiskey A Go Go.
