Originally named "Hyland's Southport Inn" and listed as being located at 9001 Oak Street, the club was owned by Joe Hyland. Hyland sold it to George and Rudy O'Dwyer who changed the name to the "Southport Club". Charlie Kerner bought it in 1916 and renamed it the "Old Southport".

Through the years it has been called the "Southport Inn" and the "New Southport". The "New Southport" at 1300 Monticello was owned by Carlos Marcello.

The building remains, hosting live music and is now called "Southport Hall".
