Below is an advertisement from The Washington Post from June 2nd, 1968. If you were an attractive young woman, this was a good place for you to work.
Before the go-go bar, the place was an old-fashioned honky tonk bar called Roaring Twenties East. And, they also were in the market for attractive young women employees in the ad below from 1966.
