Description
Originally known as the La Boheme from 1929 to 1933, the Trocadero was opened by Hollywood Reporter William Wilkerson in 1934. The building was remodeled in 1938 by owners Bugsy Siegel and Mickey Cohen. After years of serving as one of Hollywood's best evening destinations, and another change of ownership, the "Troc" closed in 1946.
The long low building of the Trocadero, located at 8610 Sunset Boulevard, as seen from across the street.
