Address Cathouse Hollywood 828 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038, USA

Open only on Tuesday nights since its founding in 1986, the Cathouse Hollywood is one of the privileged witnesses of rock history.

It was because he was looking for a place to pick up girls and play the music he liked that future MTV host Riki Rachtman created the Cathouse in 1986. Soon, the most prominent musicians of the rock scene flocked there to party, like Aerosmith, Motörhead and Mötley Crüe. Guns N’ Roses was the first to perform here. This is also where the legendary altercation between Axl Rose and David Bowie took place. In 1988, the director Penelope Spheeris immortalized the place in her documentary The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years.
