I'm pretty sure that the Sand and Sea stood on what is now an empty lot at the intersection of I-37 and Shoreline Blvd., between the Omni Bayfront and the Federal Courthouse.

Pretty sure it's the old Courthouse. Was abandoned for a long time.

Thanks you! Nice building. It's near the big convention center across the bay from the Aircraft Carrier.

Haha. It was abandoned in 1976 or so. When I was in boy scouts (a noble thing back then), there was a koifish pond in front withthe koi still in it. When a janitor appeared, I asked him what they were going to do with the fish. The guy said that he didn't know, but that if they didn't do anything with them that he was "gonna fry em up". Don;t know why that made us laugh so hard.

IIRC it was called the Carousel Club before and was on Ayers a little south of Six Points.

The old courthouse is beautiful, but it would cost many millions to refurbish it. The CC Historical society offered a tour of it several years ago and you could tell how nice it had been at one time. Now it is completely trashed on the inside. We walked through it in July, but because it was built before air conditioning, and has thick walls and big windows, it was very pleasant inside.
