Ask Chris: Is it True That Frank Sinatra Had a Secret Love Nest Near Capitol Records?

Our in-house historian has the answer

Ol’ Blue Eyes’ early albums for Capitol were produced at the label’s original location at Sunset and Vine, near a TV-studio building that featured a lavish penthouse. The bachelor pad had a fireplace, a projection system, a private elevator, and city views. These days Sinatra’s rumored hideaway—engineers reported seeing him there in the wee hours—serves as the employee lunchroom for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Pickford Center, which took over the building.
