Please join the ADSLA on Friday, April 27th from 6 to 9 p.m. for Cocktails in Historic Places™ at 94th Aero Squadron in Van Nuys.

A San Fernando Valley institution, 94th Aero Squadron was opened by WWII Army Air Corps vet David Tallichet in 1973. Modeled after a typical French Normandy farmhouse, the ivy-covered restaurant doubles as a wartime museum, housing authentic vehicles, weaponry, and other remnants of the battlefield, including a World War I biplane, cannons, Jeeps, uniforms, gas masks, and rare photos.

The restaurant is located on the north end of the historic Van Nuys Airport. Opened in 1928, the airport has served as a location for such classic films as Casablanca and Lost Horizon, as well as been the site where aviation pioneers such as Amelia Earhart set and broke records. Now, it’s one of the world’s busiest non-commercial airports, with nearly 1,000 takeoffs and landings per day.

94th Aero Squadron patrons can watch all the comings and goings from the restaurant’s rustic patio while dining on burgers, steaks, and other classic American fare. Select tables are provided with headsets that allow guests to listen in on live communications between the Air Traffic Control tower and pilots. For dinner reservations, call (818) 994-7437, or reserve via Open Table.

Cocktails in Historic Places™ is open to members and non-members alike, and no reservations are required, but an RSVP on our Facebook page helps us provide a head count to the venue and generates a reminder.

Come as you are or dress up in something Deco – either way, we look forward to seeing you Friday, April 27th from 6 to 9 p.m. for no-host cocktails at 94th Aero Squadron!
