Van Dyke, whose entertainment career has spanned seven decades, attended the opening of the Feinstein's at Vitello's supper club in Los Angeles on June 13. He was accompanied by his wife, Arlene Silver.

"I'm a good friend and a fan of Michael's but I'm also a ham. I'll get up on stage anytime. Just show me the lights!"

For the occasion, the Hollywood legend looked very elegant in a navy suit with a white shirt and silver silk tie. He also wore a chimney sweep pin on his lapel as a nod to his iconic role in "Mary Poppins," a 1964 American musical fantasy film directed by Robert Stevenson and produced by Walt Disney.

Owned by legendary musician Michael Feinstein, the latest supper club, which sits above the main dining room of Vitello's Restaurant, in LA's Studio City intends to host a series of shows for visitors.

At the venue, Van Dyke was joined by other A-list actors in Hollywood — Liza Minnelli, Lily Tomlin, Loni Anderson, and Jill Whelan.

Minnelli, the daughter of actress Judy Garland, is a close friend of Feinstein. The "Love Is Here to Stay" singer said:

"I'm here because of Liza. She helped me early in my career. She put me on the map by sharing who I was with other people. She spent a lot of time and energy, even money, to help promote me because she believed in me."

"I can't imagine not being here. We were instant friends. I trust him with my life. He's my family."

The award-winning actress even gave the vocalist consent to make a room in the venue named in her honor.
