After Bublichki closed, Jerry Lewis opened his namesake restaurant here, replacing the quaint, half-timbered structure with a low-slung modern building (addressed as 8844). The building went through a succession of owners and name changes after Lewis closed in 1964, finally becoming The Classic Cat topless club in July 1966.
