OK, the whole Hancock Street subject started because I was trying to convey why I was intrigued by Sunset Boulevard (it was nearby).




Ciro's nightclub was located at 8433 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.

Formerly the Club Seville, which featured a glass dance floor over a pool filled with fish,
it opened in 1940 and closed in 1959. During this time it was one of the most famous nightclubs in the world.
