Since its opening in 1973, the Sunset Strip nightclub has presented a stellar array of musicians, comedians and theatrical revues, including Neil Young, Bob Marley, Rickie Lee Jones, Chuck Berry, Genesis, Bruce Springsteen, Miles Davis, David Bowie, the Clash, Prince, the Replacements, the Pharcyde, Jane's Addiction, Dolly Parton, the Dead Weather, the Dickies, Cobra Verde, Nellie McKay, the Ringling Sisters, Nirvana, the Sex Pistols, Pee-Wee Herman and the American theatrical debut of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The Ramones filmed the concert scenes for Rock & Roll High School here, and Van Morrison, Social Distortion and Warren Zevon are among the notable personalities who've recorded live albums in the West Hollywood club. Apart from a full-service bar, the main room and its dark walls (which feature photos of past performers) are austere and functional instead of lavishly decorated, but that's because the focus is on the musicians onstage. The adjoining upstairs lounge On the Rox hosts parties, DJs and live performances and has been the site of numerous celebrity sightings, going back to John Lennon's and Harry Nilsson's notorious lost weekend in the mid-1970s. Both venues are all ages with separate full bars.
