Lake Cliff Club

Philip Dutton: “When I was in high school and college in the 70s there was a bar and dance hall on the north side of Cross Lake called The Lake Cliff Club. As I recall it was primarily a country western honky-tonk. I was only in it once. Long haired hippies were uncomfortable there. :))” ...

This club was frequented by √íeverybody who was anybody√ď and wanted to party away from the Louisiana Hayride.
