Circus Room.

By WASHINGTON - VANCOUVER / MENU)

Vancouver, WA.: Circus Room.. 1949.. Menu, 13 x 10 inches, for a restaurant and bar located in the St. Elmo Hotel, a circa 1900 hotel in downtown Vancouver, Washington. The menu reports that the "Chocolate Soldier," one of the alcoholic beverages listed on the menu and priced at 63¢ was "Awarded prize as champion cocktail of Europe for 1949." By whom this great honor was bestowed is not revealed. The Circus Room’s existence was clearly facilitated by passage of Washington State Initiative 171 in the Presidential Election of November 1948. The Initiative authorized the sale of liquor by the drink in restaurants, hotels, clubs, trains, ships and airplanes. A modest listing of Chinese dishes comprises the food offerings on the menu; the bulk of the menu's listings are devoted to alcohol: Scotch, Bourbon, Gin, etc. etc. plus a special listing of "Tropical" beverages, for example the Zombie ("A man's drink, as only a lumberjack can handle this") or the Scorpion ("Served in a huge bowl for two people"). Menu in very good clean condition, presumably from the first year of operation. The cover of the menu features a circus clown balancing an oversize cocktail glass on his butt...presumably indicative of the good times to be had at the St. Elmo. .
