What was the Cockatoo Inn and Hotel like in its midcentury heyday? Here are some interior shots of the bar/restaurant area as well as the room furnishings. Thanks to our pal Dick from Tennessee for letting us all take a look inside the Cockatoo Inn. Images are from the mid 1960s.
The guest rooms were furnished with wall-to-wall carpeting and featured all-tile showers, air conditioning and heat. The wall paneling was made of birch. They offered 24-hour room phone service and according to Lococo, the rooms were soundproofed!
Then there’s the Inn. Compare the restaurant shots below with Tarantino’s fictional set dress for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which was set in 1969!
