Tales from My San Francisco Nightclub
When ElMatador opened in 1958, Bennett Cerf called it “the most attractive room inAmerica.” Part saloon, part salon, Barnaby Conrad’s nightclub was nestled inthe heart of San Francisco’s cabaret and nightlife district. On any givennight, one might find Noël Coward, Marilyn Monroe, Truman Capote, FrankSinatra, Ava Gardner, or Tyrone Power in the club or might hear Duke Ellington,Art Tatum, Eva Gabor, George Shearing, or André Previn take over the piano.
In Name Dropping,Barnaby Conrad vibrantly evokes this bygone era. Charming, personable, andwitty, the author is both celebrity and fan as he shares vivid, hilarious, andsurprising anecdotes, delightfully dropping famous names all the while.
