The Abbey stands as a marquee for the city in which she is located in. The atmosphere transitions slowly and gracefully like the seasons of time which is the key to life itself. I refer to this place in concordance with the element of life because it is rare to invoke the combinations in which this landmark is known for. I have watched her clientele change from locals to internationals with a comfortable merge of diversity and sophistication..
This grand venue is and has been a favorite meeting/brunch/dinner/business venue for years (or at least since my first experience with her in the mid 80's). I reside in the hills of Whittier, CA. and was a club kid back in the day when you could on occasion catch the likes of Madonna, Sandra Bernhardt, Jodi Foster, Kristi Mc Nichols (by the way what ever happened to her?), Chris Vaughn, Cyndi as well as an aray of intellectuals and artists and A and B list performers (too many to mention) has always been a well maintained hub for the occasional smoke of a cigarette.
