Red Onion Saloon in the Old Days
If you're curious about what nightlife was like during this era, look no further. The Red Onion Saloon was host to tens of thousands of rowdy customers who filled up the bar and awaited the ladies of the evening. It was built in 1898 at the corner of 6th and State, as a saloon, dance hall and bordello. When it was moved here in 1914, the movers somehow installed it backwards, putting the rear of the structure on Broadway.
