The Club Royal Hawaiian was located at 960 Bush Street in San Francisco. It opened in 1934, after its predecessor, the Club Kamokila, closed. 960 Bush Street was residence to a host of other nightclubs after the Royal Hawaiian, including the well-known music venue, The Boarding House in 1971. The building was replaced by condos in 1980.
