The Grand Prix is listed in national Gay Bar Guides from 1966 to 1972. Listings are all over the place: sometimes "very popular", sometimes "rough area", then "primarily women" and "private club". The final listing in a 1972 guide reads "on and off"- and there are no listings after that. No local documentation is known.

More information about this business is welcomed from anyone who can contribute it.
