They’re not technically on the roof, but with the views below it sure feels like it. Depending on your mood and the time of day, any one of these rooftop venues at the West Hollywood hotel have a scene. Herringbone, the restaurant from Brian Malarkey’s restaurant group, is like a sprawling living room for full-service dining and drinks during the day and night. Sayulita is the new tequila and taco bar near the pool. Skybar is still a draw for both daytime pool fun and nighttime lounge action, but evenings are more bro-tastic with untz-y DJ music and everyone dressed to the nines.
The View: Spectacular views of the city below, from West Hollywood to Beverly Hills, and even Downtown on a good day.
Eat & Drink: Drinks at Skybar feature everything from Red Bull to cold-pressed juices (even one with kale!), but as long as they have vodka in them, they’ll do the trick. Get shrimp and bacon tacos and drinks from Julian Cox and Josh Goldman at Sayulita. The Butterfly Kisses (reposado tequila, mezcal, Aperol, tamarind Jarritos, strawberry and firewater bitters) is fun and funky.
Insider Tip: You need to be on a guest list for Skybar. That, or be prepared to order bottle service or be turned away at the door. Try making reservations here.
