Friars of Beverly Hills renovated

The Friars of Beverly Hills–is the new title of the club–which has no ties to the venerable Friars Club of New York.

The
Coast club is now owned by Darren Schaeffer with Irwin Schaeffer as
president, Larry King as abbot and is now open to the general public
for dinners and special events –with the provison that reservations
are made with the added note, “as guest of the management.” However,
non-members are not allowed above the club’s second floor dining and
showroom –they are barred from the members’ private dining and cigar
rooms.

The renovated club held an
opening party Wednesday (Oct.19) with Jon Favreau and Larry King (with
his two small children) welcoming the packed-to-the-newly decorated
walls crowd.

Four, glass-enclosed
go-go dancers added to the retro theme of the opener. Among first
niters: Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn, Elaine and Allan Rich,
Gloria Allred, George Shapiro, Judy Tenuta, Kate Linder, Larry Elder,
Lauralee Bell, Carla and Shanna Ferrigno, Malcolm Jamal-Warner and Mark
Moses.
