Jumbo's Clown Room And Coolhaus Created A New Ice Cream Treat
Sometimes, two glorious things collide to create a piece of magic. Today, it's Coolhaus and Jumbo's Clown Room, joining forces on a new ice cream flavor. Hollywood institution and rock 'n roll burlesque bar Jumbo's Clown Room will be celebrating its 45th anniversary this Saturday. To commemorate the occasion, there will be a Coolhaus ice cream truck outside the bar serving up a new special ice cream flavor.
It consists of Italian Amarena cherries, stone ground dark chocolate, Maker's Mark bourbon and salt, with a little waffle cone hat on top of a double chocolate chip cookie. This is meant to look like a 'clown cone.'
Coolhaus CEO and Co-Founder Natasha Case said in a statement that the inspiration came from Jumbo's red and black color scheme, as well as its "rich rock & pole history."
"The lavishness of the cherries and intensity of the dark chocolate complimented by bourbon speak to the vibrance and fun of the Jumbo's atmosphere. And a waffle cone top hat? Well, who could resist that resemblance to a clown and twist on a favorite of yesteryear," she said.
Jumbo's first opened in 1970, but switched to incorporate pole dancing in 1982. Unlike other pole bars, the women here choose their own songs from a jukebox. You're liable to hear Judas Priest, Marilyn Manson, Lana Del Rey and a song from Moulin Rouge all in one evening.
Coolhaus will serve the treat on Saturday, November 21 from 8 p.m. until midnight outside of Jumbo's Clown Room, located at 5153 Hollywood Blvd. in East Hollywood.
