Southern Turf Building in Nashville (A0022577)Keith Dotson Photography
Black and white photograph of the Southern Turf building, constructed in 1895 on Cherry Street (now 4th Avenue) in Nashville, Tennessee. The Southern Turf was one of many notorious saloons that operated in Nashville's "gentlemen's quarter," where no self-respecting Victorian-era woman would walk. In addition to a saloon, Southern Turf also offered gambling and betting, and a hotel with false walls to hide prostitutes during police raids. Southern Turf closed in 1914 when prohibition swept across Tennessee, and housed the Tennessee Publishing Co., until 1936. The building's basement has been home to Skull's Rainbow Room since the 1940s.
