“the place to be seen since 1928”
White Oaks opened its doors in 1928 and it became the place to be seen in almost immediately. The larder was always chock a-block and it was presided over by master practitioners of the epicurean art. The booze was ferried in from Canada nightly and it flowed copiously from dusk to dawn. These two necessities of the good life were further enhanced by grand-scale wagering, and it was within this sybaritic ambiance that captains of the industry, political hacks, denizens of the underworld, and sports and entertainment luminaries, mingled and rubbed congenial elbows. Rumors are rife that once upon a time, during the infamous prohibition fiasco, White Oaks augmented its celebrated cuisine by dispensing forbidden spirits. Not the bath-tub gin and needled beer variety that were rampant, mind you, but the authentic wares of distillers in Canada, Scotland, and France. In addition to this brazen liquor transgression, some hardy survivors of that era whisper that high-stakes gambling supplemented the whole ticklish operation.
