Slapsy Maxie’s was a popular Miracle Mile nightclub in the 1940s. It was located at 5665 Wilshire (at the former location of the Wilshire Bowl). Note that the Marfay Buiding next door is under construction.
In the summer of 1948, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis made their West Coast debut at Slapsy’s. Their four week engagement sold out every night and earned them a contract with Paramount Pictures.
