San Francisco Token Dug. Any info?

Here is a larger 1 1/2" diameter coin I recently dug. It is basically trashed condition wise, but the closer I looked at it, the more interesting it became. I cannot find any information on this club, but perhaps someone in whiskeyland could? The front is embossed "Ben G. Winter" (cougar head or bear?) San Francisco, Cal." Reverse ; "Metropole Club Rooms 773 Market St. adjoining Billiard Parlor" Most tokens I see have a monetary value of some kind embossed, but this does not. Any information that could be provided would be appreciated. The condition has something to be desired, and most of you may have chucked it, but it is cool to me.

Thanks! M.E.
