The business was Charlie Mason’s Starlite Supper Club in the late 1950s and 1960s. It opened in early 1958 as a place for African-Americans to have dinner, listen to music, and dance.
Patrons listened to world-renowned musicians/entertainers such as Ike and Tina Turner, James Brown, and Ella Fitzgerald here.
In the 1980s Esther Tate purchased the property (?). It was used as the Abundant Life Seeds of Sheeba, a cultural center. In 2005 Tate sold the property to Tim Toben.
It's now the location of the Greenbridge Condominiums. The Greenbridge plaza is named in Charlie Mason's honor.
