Successor to the Zebra Club in downtown San Diego.
"Nightclub Transforms S.d. Bar With New Bands" (Los Angeles Times, March 13, 1987)
Every Saturday night the Saigon Palace, a dingy downtown GI bar, is transformed into a hip underground nightclub where it isn't unusual to find leather-clad patrons with green or magenta hair.
From "People Who Died," (Jim Carroll appreciation, San Diego Reader, Sept. 23, 2009):
"Carroll ... gave several San Diego readings in those years, from SDSU’s Backdoor to a tiny downtown dive called Saigon Palace."
