Sunset Strip 1963

Take a drive down Sunset Strip in the 1963    Astonishing color footage of Sunset Strip starting at Horn Ave and ending at Doheny. A few historical notes: The Melody Room became Filthy McNasty’s, The Central an is now the Viper Room. The Jerry Lewis Club became the Classic Cat, University Stereo & eventually Tower Video (demolished). The PARTY became the Whisky a Go Go, The Largo became the Roxy, The Villa Nova become the Rainbow Bar & Grill and the Hamburger Hamlet can be seen in its ORIGINAL Location. The 9000 building is under construction and Sierra Towers had not been built yet! And check out the billboard for Pacific Ocean Park and an advertisement for the premiere of The Fugitive on KABC. This is truly the next best thing to a time machine. Footage can be licensed from GETTY IMAGES
