Welcome to Cadillac Jacks

Cadillac Jacks Andrew BoyleCadillac Jacks is in Sun Valley, CA. Although from the road it looks like a fully functional diner that is just closed for a few minutes but upon closer inspection, it reveals itself as a very well looked after Hollywood shooting location (and also for parties). The location was actually a real diner from the 1950 through until the 1980s, but is now tended by the owners of the neighboring Pink Hotel (also opened in the 1950s and looking pretty much like it did when it opened). Complete with functioning neon signs our front and around back, and with the Pink Motel, you feel like you’re a greaser that’s dropped in on a cross country trek needing to kick up your chuck taylor heels. It’s authenticity all the more real by the lack of crass condo towers or strip malls, abundantly adorned by an interstate railroad and stretch of high tension towers. We used the diner as a location on a recent fashion story complete with muscle cars. I just got lost in the nostalgia and felt a little ‘Jimmy Dean’ for the day…
