836 North Highland, Los Angeles CA.
After spending about 9 months at 333 N. La Cienaga, Riki Rachtman’s World Famous Cathouse moved into this location on North Highland. Only open every Tuesday, the club had a strict “No Cameras allowed” policy which encouraged many celebrities to hang out at the club. As a result, there are very few photos of the club from that period. The club gained worldwide attention when groups such as Guns n’ Roses and Faster Pussycat sported Cathouse t-shirts in various photos, videos and concerts. Rachtman later became host of MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball and brought even more attention to the club. Faster Pussycat even wrote a song about the club that appeared on their debut self titled album.
