Top Hat – Part I

Once upon a time, Windsor was the King of Entertainment. Supper-Clubs with big-name entertainment was common, among the biggest were the Elmwood (covered recently here, here and here), The Metropole and the Top Hat (which we looked at back in May).

Today we look at some historical promotional material graciously donated by Sam Drakich.

Below is a brochure put out by the Top Hat in 1983.

Check out that classic mid century wallpaper.

The Founder of the Top Hat.

Tune in tomorrow for Part II, when we head inside the Top Hat to make a final visit to this legendary local establishment.
