The Mercedes-Benz SL Turns 60 Years Old

The Mercedes-Benz SL Turns 60 Years Old

The Marbella Club is a throwback to the days when jet set meant something: the 1960s, when men were playboys and women wore risque' bikinis. Even today, rather-too-good-looking men can be observed mooching about wearing too much 'product' in their hair, considered linen kit and slip-on loafers. Their gazelle-like girlfriends toy with Caesar salads (no chicken, dressing on the side) and feign playing tennis (actually lying by the pool).

Nicholas Foulkes wrote the book Marbella Club: The First Fifty Years and confesses it's one of his favorite spots, while columnist and style guru Stephen Bayley, another fan, highly recommends a blast up the twisting A397 road to Ronda.
