Friars Club of Beverly Hills
Founded in 1961 by Milton Bearle, The Friars is quite simply Beverly Hills’ premier private entertainment club. However, the dining facility and bar on Level II is open to the public, as guests of the management (make sure to call ahead!). Executive Chef Robert van Houten prepares "gourmet comfort food," including a delectable grilled 12-ounce filet mignon and a wild-caught poached salmon. The members-only club features a plethora of entertainment options, such as variety shows, comedy showcases and musical entertainment. Drop in and see why celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Billy Crystal have called this hotspot their "home away from home."
