Club Rumboogie was a private club, operated by the "Everready Social Club," located at 509 East Salamanca Street in the Hawkshaw neighborhood. The club existed from the late 1940s through the early 1960s.

In 1960, 17 members of the club were charged with disturbing the peace. Judge William C. Jones ruled that the mere presence of 17 black Pensacolians at the club didn't constitute disturbing the peace, and dismissed the charges.[1]
