LA is an amazing city in terms of activities, events and even rooftop bars. These bars offer visitors much more than just a great view however. From the drinks to the company, you can’t go wrong with these great experiences. See the iconic Hollywood sign, the mountains, the downtown skyline and even the beach all while enjoying a drink. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, you are not alone. William Bailey Travel invites you to take a closer look at three of the best choices you won’t want to miss.
The Standard Rooftop Bar is located on South Flower Street downtown. Hotelier Andre Balazs owns the Standard Downtown as well as the legendary Chateau Marmont. The Standard is decorated in 1960’s era throwbacks, retro sheik to say the least. The lounge is red, white and neon hued with waterbeds. They also project classic movies on the façade of the building next door. You will feel like you stepped back in a bygone era of this hopping town.
High is located at the Hotel Erwin on Pacific Avenue. This is a great spot to catch the sunset going down over the Pacific Ocean which creates its own canvas of hot pinks and deep, rich purples that reflect off the horizon and crashing waves. If that is not enough to grab your attention, look down and catch some of the best people watching in the world, as you can see the Venice boardwalk from your vantage point here.
Perch is located on South Hill Street and offers some of the best unobstructed views of Downtown LA. It is located on the 15th floor of an Art Deco building and is perfect for lounging with two outdoor fireplaces and scattered fire pits. Perch offers both indoor and outdoor seating and features jazz music in the spring and summer.
The weather can get quite hot in LA, and these are great places to chill out with a drink in hand. The scenes might vary, but you’re sure to experience a little local glamour and stunning views no matter what establishment you choose at these elevations.
