Friendly Inn

The Friendly Inn was at 408 West Third Street in downtown Dayton, one of several bars in the 400 block of West Third that featured bluegrass music in the 1950s. It was owned at one time by William Greenblatt but was sold to Milton A. “Little Mickey” Friedman, who eventually changed the name to Little Mickey’s. The Osborne Brothers and Red Allen were playing at the Friendly Inn when they received word that they were going to be signed to an MGM Records contract.
