Recognizing San Francisco’s classic club and landmark and the man who started it all: Mr. Bimbo Prohibition Cup & Saucer

Agostino “Bimbo” Giuntoli opened The 365 Club in 1931 when the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution was in full swing. Though known for the silver buckets, showgirls, multi-course dinners, and crooners, Bimbo’s also operated as one of the many speakeasies during the Prohibition years. Family owned and operated to this day, Bimbo’s is a true San Francisco institution, where one might even still be able to catch a glance at the naked lady dancing in the fishbowl behind the bar.

The Heritage Preservation Society together with one of San Francisco’s most classic clubs, Bimbo’s 365, present the Mr. Bimbo Prohibition Cup & Saucer. We celebrate and honor the man, the myth, who started it all and created the Copa Cabana of the West Coast and ultimately the best show in town.

The Mr. Bimbo Prohibition Cup and Saucer is culled from vintage Bimbo’s advertisements from the 30′s and 40′s and is limited to 140 sets.
