5. Oliver Café and Lounge:

Oliver Bomb Never before have drinking and dining in Beverly Hills been so affordable and yet still so damn classy. Adjacent to Equinox sports club, Oliver Café and Lounge is a stunning corner eatery with white leather seating and 180-degree views of one of the world's most expensive shopping districts. Get there when the into-the-night "chillout hour" begins at 4 p.m., and you can spend endless time (but not too much money) blending in with the haute bourgeoisie. Sip on a $5 house cocktail (good, stiff choices include the Oliver Bomb, Sunny Cape Cod and the Caprioska), $3 draft beer or $5 house wine while Fabio look-alikes and television screenwriters mill at the bar, paying full price for protein shakes. The $6.50 appetizer menu might lend itself to gorging, but with dim sum and homemade quiche at that price, you can always use the money you save for a membership at the gym next door.
