Entertainment Greats Appeared at Rendezvous Room When It Was Here
When this site housed the Rendezvous Room at the Senator Hotel, many entertainment greats, including Louie Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington performed here. See, for ex., https://phillyjazz.us/2015/12/21/rendez-vous-club/ and http://www.ocfrealty.com/naked-philly/washington-square-west/delorean-time-machine-irving-house (comments say building here now chills water for hospital). I first heard of it in Milestones (Phila. Corp. for Aging), July 2017, p. 15, column by Don Harrison. Mr. Harrison wrote that Ronny Graham, program consultant on the M*A*S*H television show, had been a stand-up comedian here.
