LOCATION UPDATE: An alert blog viewer nails the location of the "Peacock Bar"
A GIANT THANK YOU TO Eitan Alexander


This one we need help with, the exterior shot of this restaurant shows "Peacock Bar" but the interior shots show the wait staff wearing shirts that say "Butterfield's"... Anybody know what the real name of this place is and where it is located or once located?
 
The Peacock Bar location (at least the exterior shots/scenes) has been identified by Eitan Alexander
In the two below scene photos from a 1971 episode of the TV series "Mod Squad" the exterior of the Peacock Bar can be seen. The name of the restaurant / bar was named the MEDITERRANIA located at 55 / 51 North La Cienega Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA
Today in 2015 it is The Stinking Rose - 55 N La Cienega Blvd but it was recently sold....
