Part of the Hollywood Rocks NFT Collection

The FIRST EVER (1 of 1) Non-Fungible Token (NFT) that archives the site of the historic Viper Room nightclub. (CLICK HERE to experience the interactive demo)

The Viper Room is located at 8852 Sunset Boulevard on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California. The Viper Room opened its doors in 1993 and quickly became one of the hottest hangouts of the young Hollywood elite, including regulars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Marie Presley, Jared Leto, Christina Applegate, Angelina Jolie, Rosario Dawson, Tobey Maguire, Drew Barrymore and Leonardo DiCaprio. The club was owned by actor Johnny Depp and Sal Jenco, who starred in 21 Jump Street with Depp. On opening night, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performed at the request of Depp. The Viper Room became a magnet for both well-established artists and up-and-comers, including The Strokes, Johnny Cash and The Pussycat Dolls. But a sad event in the first year of operation cemented The Viper Room's infamous reputation. It was the site where actor River Phoenix died of a drug overdose on Halloween night in 1993. Years later, The Viper Room received additional somber notoriety as being the place where the band INXS's frontman Michale Hutchenece played his last public performance on November 16, 1997, only 6 days before his suicide.

There is much rich history at the location on Sunset that predates The Viper Room. Dating back to 1921, it’s one of the oldest buildings on The Strip. For the first 20 years it served as a small grocery store. As The Strip grew and became more of a playground for celebrities, the grocery store was replaced in the mid-1940s with a nightclub called the Cotton Club. It advertised itself as “Harlem in Hollywood", although it had no association with the famous Cotton Club in New York City's Harlem neighborhood.

After the Cotton Club closed, the structure went through several night club permutations. In the late 1940s, it became the Greenwich Village Inn, then the Rue Angel. In 1950 it became the strip club Last Call and transformed again in 1951 to a cabaret called Melody Room that lasted until 1969. The Melody Room was known for its diverse lineup of performers, along with the wide array of gangsters who hung out there. From 1973 to 1980 the structure became rock club Filthy McNasty’s before becoming a club known as Central. According to Los Angeles magazine, “During the 1980s you could easily catch a set by Rickie Lee Jones or bump into John Belushi at The Central. In 1981, The Who’s John Entwistle participated in an open jam night there on Tuesdays. Mitch Mitchell (of the Jimi Hendrix Experience), Buddy Miles, Les Dudek, Carlos Castaneda, Jr., C.C. DeVille (before he was in Poison) would sit in or be seen drinking at the bar."

Today The Viper Room continues to be a vibrant music venue playing host to mostly metal and punk rock bands.

ALL WORKS 1 of 1

The first collection of NFTs to archive the sites of the notorious music and nightlife scene that made the area around Hollywood and the Sunset Strip legendary.

The structures, where so much history was made, will now persist into our digital future on the Blockchain as a tribute to the rich artistic and cultural contributions that the area has given to people worldwide.

Each piece was produced specifically for this NFT archiving, through the rendering of photographs (photogrammetry) captured by drone flying above each building taking hundreds of photos and recording accurate location data. The photos & data were then rendered into interactive 3D models and geo-referenced map files.

The structures may ultimately fall, but their digital likeness will live on.
