In January of 1940, the address of 8433 Sunset Boulevard on the Sunset Strip became known all over the world as Ciro’s until 1957. In 1983 it became the Comedy Store, which is still is. But before all that, it was known as Club Seville, which opened New Year’s Eve 1935 and featured a crystal dance floor with subsurface fish, fountains and colored lights in its Crystal Marine Room. Now, THAT I would love to have seen!

In 1938, Club Seville closed, then reopened as Marcel Lamaze restaurant, however it did not last long. Marcel would then go on to open Café La Maze at 9039 Sunset Boulevard.
