Clifton's at Night!




















           The other night I went to Clifton's at Night with all of my friends, this place is INSANE! I don't know if you know the history of Clifton's Cafeteria but I will write all about it for you here. I had the most amazing time. This place is four stories high and has so many hidden secrets to it. They even have an underground secret speak easy bar!! They are having an amazing NYE Dapper Day party with Dita Von, so get your tickets ASAP it will be incredible. This place blew me away, it is by far my favorite place ever. The bars are amazing and the massive tree in the center of the entire place is mind blowing. The live music and the dancing girls was such a plus to the night! Parking across the street only costs $6 so don't bother to uber! I wish I knew this before. Get your butts down there and 100% go to the New Years Eve event!! You will not regret it!

HISTORY: 

Clifton's Cafeteria, once part of a chain of 8 Clifton's restaurants, is the oldest surviving cafeteria style eatery in Los Angeles, California,[1][2] and the largest public cafeteria in the world.[3][4][5][6][7] Founded in 1931 by Clifford Clinton,[8][9] the name was created by combining "Clifford" and "Clinton" to produce "Clifton's".[10][11] The design of the restaurants included exotic decor and facades that were "kitschy and theatrical".[12]
The second Clifton's facility opened in 1935.[1] In 1939 its name was changed to "Clifton's Brookdale", and as the sole survivor of the multiple branches over 79 years, it is now known as "Clifton's Cafeteria" or more familiarly simply as "Clifton's". Located at 648 S Broadway[13] near Los Angeles' downtown theater district, it has remained in operation for 74 years.
The restaurant chain was noted for each facility having its own theme, and for aiding those who could not afford to pay.[2][14] This approach to business reflected the owner's Christian ethos—he never turned anyone away hungry[6][15] and maintained a precedent set by the first restaurant on Olive Street, known as "Clifton's Golden Rule".
In 1946, Clifford and his wife Nelda sold their cafeteria interests to their three younger Clinton children, and retired to devote their attentions to a Meals for Millions, a non-profit charitable organization he founded in the wake of World War II to distribute food to millions of starving and malnourished people throughout the world.[10]
Clifton's Brookdale was sold to nightclub operator Andrew Meieran on September 21, 2010.[16] Meieran stated that he intended renovations that would preserve the food and unique atmosphere of the establishment, and that they were re-introducing some of the restaurant's 1950-style recipes.[17] During the first phase of planned renovations in 2011, the cafeteria closed on Mondays and Tuesdays during the summer, but remained open other days.[17] In September 2011, the cafeteria began its second phase of renovations and closed for an expected three-to-six month, $3-million rehabilatation, in preparation for a 2012 re-opening.[18] The bakery remained open for a time during the restaurant closure.[19] In February 2012 Meieran said the remodeling was expected to continue for another 18 months.[20] Clifton's Brookdale reopened October 1, 2015.[21][22][23]

  1. Melanie writes; My love toward my husband hurts, since the day I took the risk and confronted one of his mistress, life was unbearable and it was clear he loves her more than me because he totally changed, and fought with me for confronting her instead of apologizing to me, he left the house for two weeks, froze my account and even served me with a divorce papers through his lawyer. I didn’t know it will get to that, I was disappointed and lost hope on trust, I thought I could have let them be, so I can save my marriage, I was at the verge of losing everything including our house. I needed to do something because I was almost running crazy, no chance to chill, I had only one option to find instant solution before it all disappears. I searched everywhere I could until I met Dr. Wakina on the internet with this email: (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com), people really talked good about him and I was bold to ask him for one. Well, am glad he did at the end my husband came back on his knees, after the spell, begging for forgiveness. From what I have studied lately, my husband has indeed changed and become lovely. We never mentioned or even thought about divorcing again. Am so grateful for Dr. Wakina’s help.

  2. I'm very excited sharing this amazing testimony about how i save my marriage and get my husband back today, My name is Keys Miller,i live in Los Angeles, California, and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband. So terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce,he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband . So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly contact Dr Ogudugu if you have any problems,{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}. Thanks you Dr Ogudugu, i will always be testifying about your good work.
