Ambassador Cam, #13


Ambassador Hotel, 11/29/05, 10:15 a.m.

The plastic sheeting is back off the Cocoanut Grove entrance, while the building continues to get shorter as a demolition team chips away at the floors.

Meanwhile, LAist tips us off to some great up-close shots of the destruction here.

Memories like the corners of my mind, misty watercolored memories of the way we were. Im 49, male annd grew up in so. cal, in glendora. We had our high school prom at the ambassador hotel in the cocount room. The theme "the way we were' taken from the current hit movie of the day. I wore my powder blue tux with ruffels and danced to Mria Muldar's "midnight at the oasis".......memories. That was our night in the history of the ambassador hote!

I stayed there many times...

Last time was for a week in 1983. It was still a great hotel.

I can't really believe that I can never go back again...

Great days by the Lido pool and nights in the Palm Bar ...

The Ambassador's Last Stand It's looking more and more like the L.A. sportsbook Unified School District is planning to tear down the legendary Ambassador Hotel. That would be a shame. Not only is the Ambassador beautiful architechturally, but it's brimming with history. The Ambassador was L.A.'s elite hotel for decades, bet nfl and virtually every major performer through the 1970s was on stage at its legendary Coconut Grove nightclub. The Ambassador was home of the Cocoanut Grove nightclub, Los Angeles’ premier night spot for decades; and host to six Oscar ceremonies and to every U.S. President from Herbert Hoover to Richard Nixon (who wrote his 1952 “Checkers” speech at the Ambassador). sportsbook And most historically, the Ambassador was the site of Bobby Kennedy's assassination.The Ambassador shut down in the 1980s, a victim of the changing neighborhood. It's been threatened with demolition a number of times Donald Trump wanted to build the world's tallest building there in the early 1990s, http://www.enterbet.com but then the economy went south. Eventually, the school district badly in need of new schools inherited the site.
