Sportree's Music Bar
Sportree's Music Bar was located in the heart of Paradise Valley at Hastings and Adams at 2014 Hastings. It was owned by black businessman Raymond "Sportree" Jackson in 1946. It was known as one of the hottest spots in the city where T-Bone Walker, Dinah Washington, and the Ink Spots played. It featured a 105-foot bar with 60 chrome leather stools. In 1948 Raymond Jackson was fined $150 for having what was considered by the police and moral crusaders an indecent floor show. The club closed in 1950.
