Few L.A. nightclubs loomed as large in the public imagination as the Roxbury during its near-decade-long reign on Sunset Boulevard. From the late 1980s to 1997, it was one of the West Coast's premier celebrity playhouses, hosting newsmakers such as Madonna and Tom Cruise. The spot was permanently seared into America's visual vernacular thanks to Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan's 1998 film "A Night at the Roxbury" (even though the club scenes in the comedy were shot inside the Mayan downtown)

Another chapter in Orange County's quest to become a hip place to party unfurled Friday night with the splashy, flashy opening of Roxbury in Santa Ana. The supper club marks the latest step in the sweepstakes to bring L.A. night life to O.C., following the yup-scale pool halls, the Hard Rock Cafe and Planet Hollywood (true, the other P.H. is in N.Y., not L.A., but the theme is California-grown).

Serious glamour and no glitz prevailed at the American Red Cross benefit party at Roxbury. The few sequins in attendance were all respectfully black. Perhaps it was the Zeitgeist-- the Holocaust; AIDS; domestic violence; Sunday's 5.3 aftershock--that caused Hollywood to adopt the profound, emotionally resonant style befitting screen legends. Actress Tia Carrere remarked: "We're partying tonight, but everyone has to remember that there was an earthquake yesterday."

The former West Hollywood headquarters of noted architect Charles Luckman was sold Wednesday for a near-record price per square foot in Los Angeles County, accentuating a run-up in local office values over the last few years. Los Angeles-based Mani Bros. Real Estate Group bought two Sunset Boulevard office buildings on the eastern border of Beverly Hills for undisclosed terms, said Chief Executive Simon Mani.

"Blades of Glory" (Paramount, $30), Will Ferrell's latest comedy about the first male pair figure skaters, arrives today on DVD, as does one of the funnyman's first films, "A Night at the Roxbury" (Paramount, $15). "Roxbury," which was released in 1998, was based on sketches from "Saturday Night Live." Ferrell and fellow "SNL" regular Chris Kattan play Steve and Doug Butabi, two incredibly dense brothers whose main goal in life is to get into L.A.'s hottest nightspot, the Roxbury.

Property rights have once again prevailed in Beverly Hills -- a city that has thrived on its role as a cradle for popular culture but has tended to accommodate wealthy homeowners who would rather tear down than restore dwellings where the entertainment elite once lived. The latest structure to be reduced to rubble is 1019 N. Roxbury Drive, the house where George and Ira Gershwin wrote "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "Shall We Dance" and "Our Love Is Here to Stay."

The "Saturday Night Live" skits featuring the head-bobbing, hip-shaking, we're-so-cool-it's-pathetic nightclub cruisers offered one of the few reasons to keep tuning in to the show, especially when Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan were joined at the bar by a similarly dressed guest star like Jim Carrey or Tom Hanks. There's a demented quality to the routine that keeps it fresh even when you know what's going to happen every time.

His name graces colleges, libraries and parks from the nation's capital to the West Coast, but his only surviving childhood home has never received recognition. No plaque distinguishes the house where black nationalist Malcolm X lived in the early 1940s, a time when he ran around as a petty criminal until an arrest put him in jail and on the path to civil rights activism. The residence is just blocks from a brick row house that carries a landmark designation as the home where Dr.

Promoter Gary Blitz didn't miss a beat. His weekly, 3 1/2-year-old Disco 2000 operation rose from the ashes of Costa Mesa's recently defunct Empire Ballroom to reappear at Roxbury South in Santa Ana on Thursday nights. It features five DJs (its full roster from the Empire days except for Sean Perry, who moved to Germany) spinning three styles of dance music. Roxbury manager Greg Mandel said landing Disco 2000 was a stroke of luck.

A good cup of coffee just can't satisfy everyone. Despite the success of the Not Just Java coffeehouse in Newport Beach, co-owner Dan Barrett has craved getting back to the addictive madness of his old job as a club promoter.
