Part of the "Memory Necklace"
—A Series of Historical Panels Located in the Hilltop Loop Trail —The Hilltop Star Room, also known as the Hilltop Cafe, was once an entertainment icon on "The Hill." The building, located just in front of this panel, was the old carriage house from the Denni Mansion property, hauled across the street by the Richfield Oil Company (ca. 1921). The structure was modified and expanded to suit its new use, surviving the oil boom and intervening years. The Hilltop Star Room was considered a swank restaurant, featuring live music, a dance floor and the great view across Long Beach to San Pedro. Eventually the club went out of business and the building was demolished.
