Minoo Netervala on the far left with friends at Ciro's. Ciro's was a nightclub in West Hollywood, California, at 8433 Sunset Boulevard on the Sunset Strip. Opening in 1939, Ciro's combined an overdone baroque interior and an unadorned exterior and became a famous hangout for movie people of the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s. It was one of "the" places to be seen and guaranteed being written about in the gossip columns. Men students in the photograph are from India.
