Transcript GLORY HOLE CLOSES The Glory Hole of Dallas has closed. According to the owners who stated that although the club opened with all promises of success, something seemed to be lacking in the "enjoymentfactor", and business began a gradual decline soon after its opening. In retrospect, it can be said the employees working at the lounge were the finest. 'Mark Twain' Opens in Dallas Bob Cappell Frank Caven, entepreneur in El Paso Gay Bars a few years ago come to Dallas to open the original Bayou Club which brought both fame and fortune to the large, if not fat, man known affectionately by his friends as Mamma. Discounting his failure to revive the Atlantis by re-naming it the . King Of Clubs, (which somehow f never even became the king of spades) Frank opened the Candy Store with little success and Mother Blues with some success as a straight enterprise. The new club promises to be something else. It looks like success all over again. At first glance you will see the I shadows of patrons from years past who perennially haunted the old Atlantis, and at opemngnight, faces appeared from homes, not mainly or chiefly other bars as would be expected. Almost as though the old Villa Crowd or the Old Atlantis Crowd had waited these years for the place to open. The decor speaks little of Mark Twain. Tiffany lamps, Crystal Chandeliers, an island bar, amam- moth patio, a second story club (as yet uncompleted) blend into a smallish dance floor and game area. Circulation throughout is easy, and the layout is lavish. Chairs, tables, etc., are obviously costly and many face the double- sided fireplace awaiting romantic evenings to come. Located in the heart of the Lemmon Avenue Straight district, the bar is accessible to Airport, restaurants, etc., and is therefore planning to cater to a stable swinging straight crowd for lunches; this, according to Billy, will help create good will for the place when, it becomes Gay later in the evening. Free liquor was poured this opening night until 10:30 when a festive mood changed to the ordinary routine of bar-going once customers began paying for drinks. It is bound to be a huge success, especially if Mother Caven continues to keep the decor lively. No entertainment was provided, but snacks were placed at a back table facing a cute cubby-hole dining area which windows onto the Lemmon avenue traffic. Altogether an interesting place. Ample parking and beautifully decorated. Among those seen at opening , were Margaret (TJ's), Ronnie Sue (RonSue's), Sonny Sewall (Speakeasy), and many others. REALITY Take me to a place I've never known, where we can hold hands on the street and I can say I love you out loud — and you can touch me as we lay on the beach sunbathing.
