On Canon, in turn, spawned a private club, a posh, members-only cigar bar upstairs, called the Grand Havana Room, where privacy-loving celebrities who enjoy smoking cigars can sit out on the balcony and puff away. There's even a private, hidden elevator on the side of On Canon to take them right up to the room.
Shortly after opening, the press announced that it had become "Hollywood's newest exclusive hideaway." And it is indeed a major celebrity hang.
Even before it opened, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Robert De Niro, Milton Berle, Jack Nicholson, Tony Danza, Dennis Franz ("NYPD Blue") Andy Garcia ("The Untouchables"), Jason Priestly ("Beverly Hills 90210") and Tia Carrera ("Wayne's World") had spent $2,000 each (plus $150. a month maintenance fee) to reserve one of the club's 350 private, personalized humidors.
Other stars who enjoy relaxing at the Grand Havana Room include Bruce Willis, James Belushi, Laurence Fishburne, Meat Loaf, Sly Stallone, Jeff Goldblum, Danny De Vito, and more.
The only problem is that since it's a private club, admission is limited to members and their guests. So unless you have a friend who is a member, you're not getting in.
Getting there: The Grand Havana Room is located atop the On Canon Caffe, at the northwest corner of Canon Drive and Dayton Way, in Beverly Hills. From Rodeo Drive, just drive two blocks east on Dayton, and the Havan rRoom will be on your left.
