Another frequenly mentioned venue is the Pepper Hill Club, which was located at 200 North Gay Street in Baltimore and co-owned by Victor Lance and Morton Cohen. This club is the subject of an infamous police raid which occurred there in October of 1955, wherein the Baltimore City Police Vice Squad shuttled over one hundred arrested people to the nearby police station. A law was passed the next year banning such raids.
