"…Le Monocle, hosted by a unique woman named Jo. A member of the resistance during the German occupation, she is one of the few women ever awarded the French Legion of Honor. Among her friends she lists many persons important in international political life. Jo runs an unusual club: the doors open at midnight and don’t close again until dawn. Guests are mostly women, escorted or not. In either case, however, they are sure to have a good time and find another woman to dance with. The orchestra is female, and the waiters are women dressed and groomed as men."
