Chicago's Bosses raised an eyebrow in 1925 when Bugsy Siegel concocted the idea of a 1.3 million dollar private gambling resort inCraps.jpg the mountains east of L.A.  Club Arrowhead of the Pines was hugely popular with the rich and famous of Hollywood and opened July 4, 1929.

The posh new club included many state of the art conveniences such as electricity wired from Redlands.  In the elegant Clubhouse, gin was distilled from Artesian well water, dice rolled, and starlets tangoed.
Gambling continued in the speakeasy up to so recent a time as 1955.

The speakeasy is now a private residence but has been home to churches and restaurants.
