Bert Allerton performed his close-up magic at The Pump Room (inside the Ambassador East Hotel). Established in 1938, this famous restaurant is open for business. The hotel is a historic landmark and was featured in the Hitchcock film North by Northwest.

A review in The Jinx 139 (1941) described Allerton's act as "complimentarily intelligent."
