Moonlight on Route 66 at the infamous Luna Café. Since prohibition, the Luna has been serving up food, drinks, and history. Legend has it that the bar was a favorite hideout of mobster Al Capone and other prohibition-era gangsters- the basement held an illegal gambling den and the upstairs was a brothel. The café allegedly served as a hideout for criminals who could lie low, enjoy food and drink, and partake in the café’s many illicit activities.
Today, the Luna is a must-see stop on the Mother Road, serving steak, seafood, and chicken. Nostalgic Route 66 mementos line the walls of this historic establishment including a portrait of Capone, old license plates, and gangster memorabilia. Keeping with tradition, the café offers pool and slot machines- come play while listening to classics on the jukebox.
