Up Newell Saddles "Gabby" Hayes Danny's Hideaway

Danny's Hideaway (& His Inferno) was a steak restaurant and bar at 151 East 45th Street in New York City.  It started as a one-room bistro with seating for six.  Mama Rosa did the cooking with Danny acting as his own waiter and barkeep.  Within the next dozen years the operation was to expand to take in three four-story buildings, with 11 dining rooms seating 300, two separate kitchens and two completely stocked bars on different levels.

Outside, a 60 foot awning proclaimed it was the home of DANNY'S HIDEAWAY and His Inferno; His Music Room; His Menu Room; His Key Room; His Nook.  Celebrity parties became his specialty and everything has been celebrated there from the signing of a new TV or movie contract to the taking of a bride.


One of the youngest restaurateurs on "Steak Row", and certainly the smallest (weighing 130 pounds and standing 5 ft. 2" on tiptoe), Dante Charles Stradella, as he was christened, was also probably the most photographed.  The walls of his restaurant were adorned with some 2,000 photographs of celebrities of stage, screen, TV, radio, sports, advertising, magazines, newspapers, and in at least 90 percent of these pictures, Danny appears as a host.

This post-card shows The Gabby Hayes Room at Danny's Hideaway.  The Gabby Hayes saddle is in the left foreground of the photograph (postcard not included).



Included with the saddle is this 10" x 12 1/2" booklet from Danny's Hide-A-Way-- the booklet resembles a menu in size and shape and was a printed souvenir piece available at Danny's in the 1950's.  There are 12 pages, counting the covers.  It's packed with photographs, reproduced newspaper articles, copies of autographs, notes and cartoons- for example, a Milton Caniff drawing of Steve Canyon "Looking lean and mean after a meal at Danny's".  So many people who frequented Danny's are featured or referenced on these pages-- including Gabby Hayes, Roy Rogers, Robert Mitchum, Sid Caesar, June Lockhart, , Red Buttons, Fran Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joan Crawford, Tony Curtis (his wedding reception was at Danny's), Cesar Romero, and that's really just a small, small sampling!
