The Ambassador Hotel's Parrot Porch was one of several less formal dancing and dining rooms located on the ground floor of the Ambassador Hotel when it opened in 1921. The color scheme was blue and orange and had goldfish bowls with fish as well as exotic birds. Other dining rooms at that time included the Zinnia (sometimes spelled Xinnia) Grill and the palm room, and, of course, the 1000 seat formal dining/ballroom, which was later converted into the Cocoanut Grove. The opening house band for all three of the informal dining areas was the Max Fischer dance orchestra. (Bizarre Los Angeles)
