Our colorful past: In this respectable retreat, gamblers won and lost their fortunes while ladies of pleasure worked their trade. During the 1930s, the Sonoma Rose was a popular bordello frequented by many colorful local characters and the notorious Chicago gangster Baby Face Nelson. There were “working girls,” and also a disguised gambling den known as a cardroom.
The owner’s name was Solidad Martinez Smith, but she went by the name of Spanish Kitty. She was said to be a kind and cheerful woman who particularly enjoyed pound cake.
