Humuhumu’s description:
The restaurant currently at this site is called Gazuza. Junkanoo appears to have had Carribean influences in addition to tiki (Junkanoo is a Bahamian festival). Junkanoo may have later been called Krakatoa. The drink menu states that the mugs, which were available for sale at the front desk, were made by Potter's House Workshop in Washington, D.C.

Wow! A photo of my home away from home between 1964 and 1968. I spent loads of time with Sandy Gusti and Cliff (Manager). This was a great place to take a date on a Saturday night with good food, music and dancing. The location was amazing. I have only fond memories of the Junkanoo!
