The world renowned female impersonation club Finocchio’s was a San Francisco landmark for decades. Whenever glamorus drag with high production values was mentioned Finocchio’s was the first place that came to mind. It was possibly the only nightclub dedicated full time to female impersonation and in its heyday Finocchio’s was the place to see and be seen. As crossdressing became less unusual in the 1990s, and the the rent went up, Finocchio’s decided to close their doors for the final time in November of 1999. Our Senior Drag Correspondent at the time, Ms. Bob Davis, attended the closing night show on November 27, 1999. This November will be the 10th anniversary of Finocchio’s closing. Step back into the golden days of female impersonation one more time with a TGF rerun — Last Call At Finocchio’s.
