"The Classic Cat Strip Club" on Sunset Strip
The Classic Cat Strip Club Located at 8844 Sunset Boulevard in the heart of the Strip, The Classic Cat was the largest, most luxurious topless club of them all. You can see the Club to the left of this Photo. The club shut down in the 80's and became Tower Video. Scenes from this club were recreated for the Bob Crane movie "Autofocus".
The Strip in 1974 - Before Tower Video
Before The Classic Cat, it was The jerry Lewis Club. It opened it 1959 and closed in 1964. . If you look through the abandoned windows, you can see where The Classic Cat stage was. That is the section of Tower I remember that was raised up higher then the rest of the store. One of the strip poles is still intact as well. You can see a great re creation of The Classic Cat in the movie AUTO FOCUS.
Below is a pic of the property for lease as it stands today. As you can see it's the same drive way as the Jerry Lewis Club- just a lot more brick was added to cover the plaster and apparently Jerry's face!
