Built in 1941, the historic Cafe La Maze steakhouse was once a thriving hub for vacationing Hollywood elite. It’s where Clark Gable sipped cocktails with Marlene Dietrich at a candlelit corner booth. With live music every night, the ever-popular restaurant still welcomes guests with that rich, inviting charm, now 72 years in the making.
