The Frolic Room’s darkest secret is rooted in one of the city’s most famous murder mysteries—the Black Dalia. On January 15, 1947, the body of the Black Dalia, whose real name was Elizabeth Short, was found gruesomely mangled and cut in half at a nearby park. Next to nothing is known about the Black Dalia’s killer or his intentions. One detail about the unsolved murder that has been solidified: the Frolic Room was Short’s favorite bar and one of the last places she was seen alive.
