Night Club
“A spinning bar with one of the tallest views of downtown LA. At the top of the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. Sort of a hidden gem. Get a cocktail as you slowly rotate to see the entire city. Great for sunset. Historical ”

Speakeasy

“Great cocktails and a large space good for groups (takes reservations on Resy) as well as individuals. It’s a bit hidden, located in a basement space in the corner of a parking lot (it sounds weird but keeps the place from getting too crazy and I assure you once you’re inside you’ll never notice you’re under a parking lot!”
