    Significance Statement
    Significant as the longtime location of the Palomino Club, a country western music bar known as country music's most important west coast club. Originally opened by swing bandleader Hank Penny as The Palomino in 1949, the bar became a country western club in 1952 after new owners purchased it. Some of the biggest stars in television and film played at the club, including Patsy Cline, Johnny and June Cash, Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons, and Jerry Lee Lewis. The bar closed in 1995. Due to alterations (appearing to date to post-1995), it may not retain sufficient integrity for National Register of California Register eligibility.
