When Ryan Gosling made plans to celebrate wife Eva Mendes' 42nd birthday last weekend, he did it in signature style: by renting out a beautiful Palm Springs pad formerly owned by Frank Sinatra.

The ever-tasteful Drive actor booked Twin Palms, built for Ol' Blue Eyes back in 1947, for four nights at $2,600 per night to fête his gorgeous wife in private Rat Pack-style, People reports. And for the right price, this historic desert getaway can be rented out by the rest of us, too.

The midcentury 4 bedroom, 7 bathroom house spans 4,500 sq. ft. and has a perfect pool with towering palms and rocky outcroppings looming overhead.

The house has quite a colorful history. Sinatra used to hoist a Jack Daniel's flag to alert his neighbors — including Al Jolson, Jack Benny, and Cary Grant — that he was throwing a booze-soaked party.

One of the house's sinks still has a chip on it from the time Sinatra smashed a champagne bottle in the kitchen during a stormy argument with ex-wife Ava Gardner.

The place also comes with Sinatra's original recording studio, a pool house and plenty of Sinatra memorabilia scattered about the Palm Springs pad.

And hey, if it's good enough for Gosling and his gal, it's probably good enough for you.
