The Gloria Night Club was located on Riverside Drive, at the corner of Trabue Road. Originally called the Gloria Barbecue, it was started in 1925 by two brothers, Sam and Rocco Delewese, and Rocco's brother-in-law, Guy DeVictor. Several years later, a dance hall was added and the name was changed to the Gloria Night Club. For many years the night club was a destination for famous acts, from big band to jazz, and in the 1960s was known for teen dances and college-night concerts. This photo shows a vintage postcard (with the origin mistakenly shown as 1922) showing the expanded nightclub structure. The inset at the bottom right is a photo of a matchbook from the restaurant. Fire destroyed the Gloria around 1970, and the property on which it was located was divided into three lots. The restaurant part of the club was rebuilt on one of the three lots, and a gas station was constructed on the corner. The gas station recently was converted to a diner, the Skyward Grille, operated by Lucia's goddaughter and her husband.
