Official named, The Hong Kong Chinese Society, people in the know referred to this now legendary speakeasy as The Bucket of Blood, due to the enormous tin cups they served beer in.

Here an underage Lucille Jeter, Jimi Hendrix mother, found work as a waitress in the 1920s during the prohibition. She served drinks and occasionally provided part of the entertainment. “She would sing,” her sister Delores Hall recalled, “and men would give her tips because she was such a good singer.”
