Comments, Highlights, Stories

The Purple Toadstool was a small rock’n’roll disco with a disco-themed lit dance floor and lights, however the DJ was a rock n roller, so it morphed into a 5AM packed bar.

At one time the highest volume serving bar in the state, with a legal capacity of 125 there would be excess of 300 inside and another 450 waiting in line around the building, even the line around the bar would be partying. This flash only lasted a few years and soon went out of “style” when the core bartenders moved on.
