    Try Derick's expresso martini, the stimulating martini that tastes great! It beats a Red Bull vodka by far...

    We love the old St. James's Club built in 1931 in striking Art Deco style. Just off the Sunset strip with a view of Hollywood at your doorstep. Makes us want to smoke a pipe and dress like Cary Grant.

    Now they are back to not allowing outside people access to the pool unless you pay $75. LAME!! They do this every other year.

    Get your martini on with Jennifer Aniston! This is the former Friend's go-to spot for dinner or a drink; just make a reservation online. For lunch or dinner, try the casual poolside Terrace Bar.
