That's the most durable leatherette I've ever seen. Better Living Thru Chemistry.
A local joint from 1952 - 1957. I think the @Fading Fast s are just out of sight in the corner making their juke box selections.
I thought this one interesting, so looked on Google maps. It is still there! The Google map said 2019, so at least then. Grown up really bad, but you can pick out the restaurant and the building/rooms behind.
