Antonio's Restaurant / LB Dynasty / Studio 54 / Club Gemeni, 6212 Two Notch Road: 1970s, late 2000s   11 comments

Posted at 1:09 am in Uncategorized

I don't actually remember this place as an Italian restaurant, but apparently in 1974 it was one. Pizza was still a pretty exotic food to me then, but was one I liked, and I would have expected to remember a pizza restaurant in the Dentsville area. I certainly knew about the Pizza Hut on Two Notch more or less where the O'Reily's Auto Parts near Best Buy now is, and about Shakey's on Parklane Road. A 32-inch pizza sounds rather overwhelming, but the sandwiches sound quite good.

After Antonio's, it was a number of night-clubs and strip-clubs. By 1997, it was operating as L B Dynasty and got in trouble with the Department of Revenue leading to a 45 day suspension of the club mini-bottle license. Whether because of that, or for some other reason, it later became Studio 54, and was that until quite recently, I think (at any rate, the sign is still there). Despite that, it has been at least one other club, Club Gemeni before it's current incarnation as Club Ego

UPDATE 4 September 2011: After being several other things, it's now Laguna Sports Bar

  1. Ate at Antonio's exactly once with some friends when I was a junior or senior in high school. We had to check it out because of the 32" pizzas. They brought it out and it literally covered the entire table! Pretty good too, but the novelty was not enough to drag us away from Labrasca's.

  4. @Julie, ride by the site and see if you find a sign with a commercial real estate signage in a conspicous place on the property if it's up for rent

  5. You may be too late. As I was driving by this evening, I saw a bunch of cars there. It may already be something else..

  8. Well, the whole idea there is that you'll click on the name, see their low, low prices on Ralph Lauren and Polo attire, and buy something. When you do, of course, you'll never see a single thread of clothing and someone halfway around the world has your credit card information and they'll use it for exactly what you think.

  11. In the mid-late 80's, this building was a nightclub known as "Fame". In the picture shown, the left side of the building had a DJ (RIH Ryan Lemons - DJ Magic) and the right side featured various live bands (RIH Robert Newton) performing. Many name changes and reconfigurations since then. IIRC, the owners moved the club to the building at Two Notch & Fontaine Rd, which is currently Aaron's Furniture Rental.
