The Mile High Club (originally called Eli's Mile High Club) opened in 1974 by Eli and Alberta Thornton as a West Coast Blues venue. The club changed owners in 1979, however, after Eli's mistress (a Blues singer) shot him while he was tending bar in this Depression Era building.

Several months later, Troyce Key leased and eventually purchased the bar from Alberta Thornton. Following Troyce Key's death in 1992, the club came into other committed hands, but eventually fell on hard times, closing its doors on most nights of the week. But that was then. Now Eli's provides entertainment 5 nights each week.
