This photo features Joe and Barney Goldstein behind the bar at Goldstein’s Cocktail Lounge circa 1933. During its early years Goldstein’s hosted dances 6 days a week, served a famous burger known as the Goldyburger and a shrimp cocktail sauce that customers claimed was “unmatched.” It was founded in 1926 by Jack Goldstein, who converted the horse barn in the front of the house into a bar. The neighborhood spot would be a mainstay in the Goldstein family — including Barney, Joe and Max who would run Goldyburgers for 60 years. Their slogan was “never had a bad one.”
Goldyburgers, of course, is still going strong at 7316 Circle Ave.
