1970s bars scenes – photos satin, sex and sangria
IN the 1970s, bars were places of expectation. The men, all whipped hair, would seduce the satin-clad ladies with garish drinks. Decor was in the “exotic roadkill” style. The counters were often in a fabric. In this gallery you can almost smell the composite blend of creme de menthe, tinned pineapple, Hi Karate and cigarettes.
Cathi Schutzler, owner of Diamond LilÂs Saloon, operates cassette film for dancer Kim Thompson, 24. On screen, dancer strips nude: On stage, the dancer does the same routine at the same time live, but strips only as far as a skimpy bikini-type outfit. Miss Schutzler says she believes this does not violate TampaÂs law banning nude dancing in bars on April 22, 1978, where alcohol is sold. (AP Photo/FF)
