Las Perlas, 1939
The untold story of the single greatest massacre in U.S history occurred. Unearthed evidence shows that the current address of Las Perlas held an underground opium den and brothel for the famous of Hollywood and for the gangsters that often ate afterwards at Cole’s. Current renovations of the Santa Fe lofts unearthed a safe room full of human remains and and walls stained with blood. The final count of human remains stands at 156. Evidence points to Maria Pinkerton, owner of the underground den, as the individual responsible for the killings of all 156 male remains. It seems that all killings were done by slicing the throats of her victims after being given a famous laced drink of hers simply know as the Bloody Mary. What made her Bloody Mary so popular was the underground and very secret spirit from Mexico, MEZCAL in place of Vodka.
Knowing that in this very spot such a brilliant cocktail was created in the shadows of such horror is an honor. We here at Las Perlas can only hope that we will be able to find out the true reason behind the mass killing….until then….come and enjoy our Bloody Maria starting late fall.
