The Seven Seas was located at 6904 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, across from Grauman's Chinese Theater. First opened in the 1930's by Ray Haller, & later taken over by Bob Brooks, the Polynesian nightclub quickly became a popular watering hole. More history and lots more great imagery from the Seven Seas can be found on Tiki Central here
