"Everybody likes being part of something". Coming soon to Santa Monica, members only club 41 Ocean caught my attention. It may cost you a pretty penny to join, as rates are $2,000 per person/year or $1,250/year for members under 30---but that's well worth it for a place that will foster its own community, much like private country clubs do but on a smaller, more intimate scale. Its got this great west coast vintage look to it and a stage made for live entertainment equipped with a 1910 upright Weser piano and a state-of-the-art sound system.
If you live in the Los Angeles area, head over to their website to learn more about the club.
