Created by Producer Michael Sterling in association with Tony Monsour, Sterling’s Upstairs has presented the best of Musical Theatre performers and Nightclub artists in a cabaret supper club setting since June 9, 2006 when it first premiered at the legendary Vitello’s Restaurant in Studio City.  In honor of hislifelong friend and mentor... the late Rosemary Clooney - 
one of music’s most prolific recording stars and distinguished headliners -  Mr. Sterling not only founded and dedicated the club to her memory, but fulfilled a promise between them to keep the music of Broadway and the Great American Songbook alive and singing in a supper club somewhere 
for future generations to enjoy. 
Sterling’s Upstairs has proudly presented over 500 shows featuring some 650 performers  including stars from Broadway, national and regional musical theater stages, television and film, and distinguished nightclub artists.  Dubbed “LA’s cabaret destination” by the Los Angeles Times, Sterling’s remains the most critically acclaimed venue of its kind in Southern California. Sterling's Upstairs not only remains a constant on the entertainment scene in Los Angeles, but the standard by which all other such venues are judged.
On March 18, 2012, Sterling’s Upstairs at Vitello's closed its doors following its final concert there and reopened April 1, 2012 at one of LA's newest California gourmet gastro pubs and entertainment destinations, The Federal Bar and Restaurantlocated in the heart of North Hollywood's trendy NoHo Arts District. 
Since then, Sterling's Upstairs has presented such headliners as Broadway, Film and Television stars the multi Award-winning John Lloyd YoungLainie Kazan, Lea Thompson, Rachel York, Ilene Graff, Bill Hayes, Hal Linden, 
Academy Award winner Richard Sherman, thecast of Olympic Gold Medalist and Tony Award Nominee Cathy Rigby's National Touring Production of Peter Pan,Tony Award nominee Euan Morton, Broadway's Beth Malone, Cortes Alexander, Kim Huber, David Burnham and Valerie Perri, Matt Zarleyand 
Tony Award Winner Faith Prince with Broadway's Jason Graae; Terri White, London West End and Broadway superstar Ramin Karimloo, and many others!
"Sterling's adds a formidable dimension to the city's already hottest hot spot for dining, dancing, comedy and jazz... all while embracing the recently renovated, cutting edge interior of a former 1926 bank building."
- Variety
"To say that the present meets the past at The Federal is to say that a vintage feel with a cool sense of chic compose the ambiance at Sterling's." 
- The Hollywood Reporter 
The Los Angeles Daily News says "Like the Sondheim lyric, Sterling's has indeed been '...putting it together'  - State-of-the-Art lighting and sound, video technology, a proscenium stage, a full bar, a private, outdoor patio overlooking the NoHo surroundings, and designer floors on which formal dining tables seat 100 guests. The feel of being in the Broadway district of New York cannot be denied."
The club's impressive neighbors include the historic El Portal Theatre, the Art Institute of California, the NoHo Arts Center, the nationally acclaimed Deaf West Theatre, and Anteaus - one of LA's most distinguished classical theatre companies,  -  and numerous Equity-waiver/professional theaters. The NoHo Arts District is also home to the world renowned Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and Laemmle Movie Theatres; newly constructed, high rise condo living; and Metro Rail...rapid transit rail system serving 70 stations in Los Angeles County.
