Hermitage Ladies Restaurant

Ad for the Hermitage, New York Times,
January 24, 1910
Hermitage Ladies Restaurant

Location: 42nd Street and 7th Avenue (Time Square), New York, New York, USA

Opened/Closed: c. 1910

We haven't posted on a ladies restaurant in a while, and it seemed like time.

Hotel Hermitage (1915)
Separate eating and drinking establishments for ladies and gentlemen were fairly common in the years before Prohibition.

Though ladies escorted by gentlemen were no doubt admitted into the ladies restaurant, but ladies were not admitted into the Gentlemen's Café and Grill whether they were escorted or not.

Still a familiar double standard when it comes to womyn's space.
