Club Hubba Hubba • Honolulu HI

This gentleman's club was a popular destination for GIs from WWII to the Vietnam era, and died a slow death thereafter, closing in 1995. It was featured in the movie, "North Shore," and in the series Magnum PI.

I visited Club Hubba Hubba during the 1980s and marveled at the massive hardwood bar, stripper stage and other vintage appointments. I felt like I stepped into 1942. The lone erotic dancer looked like she had been there since the "big" war.

Soon the empty carcass of Hubba Hubba will be converted into a bar for "young urban professionals" or yet another art gallery.
