Los Angeles is the epicentre of the trendiest bars and restaurants, and with views for days of the city and Hollywood Hills, you better believe there are some epic rooftop bars to quench your thirst.
Whether you’re a local or a visitor, the sheer number of drinking venues may be a bit overwhelming – so we’re here to guide you in the right direction.
All located in the central and walkable area of West Hollywood, here are some of the best rooftop bars you have to visit while in the Los Angeles area.
Perched at the top of the stunning Jeremy Hotel sits a new rooftop bar by the name of Harriet’s, and anybody who’s anybody is flocking to sip the night away at this spot. From the twinkle lights strung across the sky to the twinkling cityscape stretching as far as the eye can see, you are sure to have a twinkle in your eye after enjoying a bevvy at this spot. All the twinkles, people.
This is our top pick for chill rooftop vibes and an approachable crowd. With 360 degree views of the Hollywood Hills, there are plenty of seating options to cozy up with a cocktail and soak in the ambience. Try a dish from the Asian fusion menu or one of the bartender’s delicious concoctions such as Where Love Lives, a mixture of mezcal, damiana, passionfruit, guava, Thai chilli and lime.
This chic ivy-covered pavilion is situated atop the Mondrian hotel and features a central pool that is maybe a little too enticing after a couple of cocktails. The open-air bar with end-to-end windows offers incredible views of the city that stretch all the way to the downtown skyscrapers and beyond. With cozy cushioned nooks and greenery galore, this sky-high oasis is the perfect place to make a splash.
Photo ops are abundant at this tri-level lounge, from the neon purple “Hello Darling” sign on the flower wall in the back, to the banner that reads “It’s the perfect night for one of those nights” (it really is, though). You will get “secret garden” vibes mixed with old Hollywood glamour as you sip away in the heart of Sunset Strip.
No detail was left untouched in this immaculate rooftop bar – it is chic, trendy, tasteful, and absolutely stunning. The thoughtful decor will catch your eye from the celebrity mural wall in the entrance to the arched vines leading into the restaurant. Come here for delectable seafood, fresh bevvies, good vibes, and all the who’s who of Los Angeles.
