The First Apartment
Manzarek and his girlfriend Dorothy invited Morrison to stay with them at their first apartment in Venice. Morrison slept in the master bedroom while the couple chose the living room, which was closer to the space heater. It was inside this tiny nook that they cooked meals together and planned the beginnings of what would become The Doors. The apartment still exists on the same street. Many people come to visit this place and remember the humble beginnings of this now world-famous rock group.
