Seems pretty far fetched to me! If Rock Hudson makes this a historic landmark, they are reaching on this one.

Is gay bar historic landmark? Laguna Beach debates future of Boom Boom Room
April 24, 2010 | 8:20 am

Some residents in Laguna Beach are pushing for historic status for a building that for decades housed an iconic gay bar that they consider central to the city's history.

The Boom Boom Room, they argue, is an important element of gay life that requires memorializing, a place where Rock Hudson for decades held court.

The proposed renovation of the Coast Inn got a unanimous vote of approval April 14 from the Laguna Beach Planning Commission. But still unsettled is the question of whether the property — former site of the Boom Boom Room — will be granted a coveted “K” rating for its historic importance to the city.

Gay activists have sought to pressure the owner, Steven Udvar-Hazy, into keeping the Boom Boom Room open or donating the property to the city as a gay center, citing its history as a center of gay culture. The bar closed in 2008, but the hotel has remained open at 1401 S. Coast Hwy.

Udvar-Hazy, who bought the property five years ago, plans to convert the aging 1928 structure from a 25-unit hotel into a 10-suite “boutique” resort with rooftop pool and 13-space parking garage, according to the Laguna Beach Coastline Pilot.

According to plans approved by the Planning Commission, the owner will restore an original Spanish-style cupola, turret and awnings to invoke the era of Laguna Beach in the 1930s and ’40s, when the town was being established as a resort — but no restaurant or nightclub would be included.

Two bars have been part of the property since it was built, according to records provided to the city by the owner.

'boom, boom, boom..let's go back to my room"
I dunno..gay culture is huge (though kinda underground) in Hollywood.
Maybe it IS a historical landmark? (it would be in San Francisco where gay culture is also huge..but obviously, more open)
But really.."The Boom Boom Room"?

Yeah my point is a simple one:

Rock was a closet homosexual and judging by your suggestive post---the fact that this joint has been dubbed in that regard rubs you the wrong way--but yes you'll deny that--so save the mis-spelled drivel. It gives me a freaking whopper of a head ache! Laugh Laugh

There he is Greeney----4 all we know he was your idol. Wasn't he a man's man in your day partner--supposedly bedded only the best of trim! 😮 No wonder you're sour on the thought! Laugh

PS. Exciting isn't it!

What is amazing is your obsession to think you are right about everything, you stoop to this level.

This post was about wasting Federal historic building restoration money spent, only because it was a gay bar Rock Hudson went to, would be "reaching" in terms of calling that an historic building. That is what I posted, and nothing more.

From that you fabricate the Cole Senerio, complete with pictures and your vivid imagination, and inuendos. You are the one providing the picutres of discriptions of Rock, not me. You are the one with suggestive comments, not me. Such a vivid imagination all your own words, not mine. You make yourself sound like someone in the closet, not to mention homophobic. Talk about looking like a fool, all you needed was a long enough rope.

There he is Greeney----4 all we know he was your idol. Wasn't he a man's man in your day partner--supposedly bedded only the best of trim! No wonder you're sour on the thought!

That was a mistake in my own copy and pasting Tom. That is the whole story, I think I accidently copied that line from the short headline composing. The story is complete.
