Nic's in Beverly Hills has everything a girl could ask for. There's a trendy, yet bohemian bar/lounge area and a more formal dining room with cozy semi-circular booths for an intimate dining experience, as well as tabletop seating for that evening meeting. The glass-enclosed vodka freezer, the Vodbox, is the perfect place for friends to share a bottle of high-end vodka while wearing faux leopard coats. And if you are into martinis like we are, you will be quite impressed with the martini menu which features 80 varieties. Do enjoy a hearty meal or just go for drinks and appetizers. Or, if you are a midnight sweets fanatic like Candice, just go for the molten chocolate cake. Nic's offers great deals on Monday nights, including $7 martinis and appetizers.
Nic's is open Mon-Thu 5pm-11pm & Fri-Sat 5pm-2am and is located at 453 N Canon Drive in Beverly Hills. Click the title link or call (424) 354-3392 for more info. Check out this video, courtesy of City Search, featuring restaurateur Larry Nicola for a tour of Nic's.
Carleton Watkins, a South American native, lived a life of photography that is key to California history. The photographs he left behind display his personal vision of the birth and growth of California. Watkins is best known for his photographs of nature in Yosemite as well as the Pacific Coast. Watkins photographed the Monterey Peninsula in the 1880s, recording the continuously unfolding progression of the scenery along Seventeen-Mile Drive, which began and ended at the Hotel Del Monte. Near the hotel, Watkins created this image of a native cypress—windblown and with its roots exposed—clinging to the side of a rocky cliff.
