I remember the Ivanhoe, especially the Catacombs. My mom was the first bar waitress hired. I believed the first three hired included a blond, redhead and brunette. My mom was the brunette. I have the photos of my mom at the club in her wild outfits and a few other things from this club. I remember this place and how scared I was as a little girl going into the Catacombs via the scary, dark tunnel. I cried every time my mom made me walk this path.
The Ivanhoe Restaurant was the highlight of the evening on my first date. Ah, and the tour in the Catacombs…
i worked at the ivanhoe in 1948 , so did my brother, we were busboys..
My mom worked there when I was a little girl (30s & 40s). I loved the catacombs.
My husband and I would come on special dates to the Ivanhoe in the early 50’s. We especially liked the Catacombs and also the bar where the bartender was a magician and did magic tricks. Always a wonderful evening spent.
Ivanhoe was so fun in the 70s I remember taking a Clark street bus to see BB king for 5bucks like every other weekend! What fun!
