With its throwback to Hollywood's golden age of glamour, The Derby is fast becoming one of Los Angeles preferred, unpretentious nightspots. What makes The Derby popular to its young and older patrons is its low-key, albeit, elegant atmosphere. Located in Los Feliz, an eclectic community of artists, writers, actors, and musicians, The Derby has quietly become the spot to have a drink and listen to some live jazz, swing, bebop, and the blues. The Derby is a place where Hollywood goes to relax, not necessarily "to be seen".

What Old Hollywood looks like at the Derby is set in a 100-by-35 foot room lined on one wall with six private booths hung with burgundy velvet curtains. Anchoring the center of the room is an ornate oval bar that saw service in the 1945 film "Mildred Pierce." This is the drama in which Joan Crawford said the immortal line "People have to drink somewhere. Why not here?"
