100 to 1 Club

In January 2015, the City of Arcadia acquired the parcel, including the building and all its contents, at 100 West Huntington Drive.  This site had been used for many years as a bar/tavern called the 100-to-1 Club.  A few of the building’s items were kept for historic preservation, including the murals depicting pari-mutuel and horse racing scenes that hung at the entrance and over the bar.

The original owner of the Club, Eugene Pelozzi, was responsible for the installation of the murals that were hanging at the Club since it opened. The murals were installed at the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage in 2016 in the Museum’s front lobby and Research Library.
