WP says: "A fire at an adjacent cocktail lounge in 1958 forced the Aragon to close for several months. After the reopening, crowds declined significantly, to the point that regular dancing ended in 1964.". Maybe that's what the song is referring to.

Trying to figure out what movie Clarke is referring to. Searched for "Robert Taylor movie Chicago lawyer" and came up with ... PARTY GIRL! "Party Girl (1958) was a return to the crime genre, starring Cyd Charisse as a 1920s Chicago showgirl who questions her ties to a syndicate boss (Lee J. Cobb) when a mob lawyer (Robert Taylor) wants her to make a break with him."
