The official origin story of Pleasure Island, which was founded by Merriweather Adam Pleasure in 1911:

In 1920, he has dinner with Sir Edwin Luytens, Charles Macintosh, and Ellel Saarinen, three of the premier architects of the day. Pleasure beats them in a hotly contested domino contest, and to fulfill their part of the bet, they design what will become Pleasure's "Adventurer's Club" on the restaurant tablecloth. The following year, the actual club is built. Pleasure moves in his vast library and archaeological trophy collection.

Thanks to and for providing this information!
