THE SUNSET, 315 East 35th Street

Last survivor of a day (or night) when black-and-tans were plentiful along 35th Street, which was then called the Rialto of the Blackbelt. The Sunset is still popular among after-theatre crowds and the amusement and atmosphere are on a par with those found elsewhere in the colored section of Chicago. Douglas 6100.
