If you’re not at the beach when in California, then you better be at a rooftop, sipping fancy cocktails and admiring views of the Los Angeles skyline and Hollywood Hills. Sounds like the American dream to us. For the swankiest ways to kick back high up, visit these six rooftop bars throughout Beverly Hills that serve up hand-crafted cocktails and that coveted L.A. vibe.
The largest rooftop of its kind in Beverly Hills, this rooftop garden bar sits atop the 12-story Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and has 360-degree views of the city. Sip on ever-changing hand-crafted cocktails or enjoy small plates infused with a Latin and South Asian flair.
If late-night swims and margaritas are your thing, head to The Rooftop Grill. Located next to the resort’s mosaic-tiled swimming pool that stays open until 10 p.m., this grill serves up a Sunset Hour menu, availably nightly from 5 to 7 p.m. Fill up on summer cocktails, sommelier-selected wines and vintage champagnes, Casamigos tequila flights, as well as savory dishes like ceviche tostadas, steak tacos, chicken wings and beef sliders. Not to mention the grill is home to The Hundred Dollar Margarita, a mix of Casa Dragones Joven Tequila, lime, coconut, tangerine and white peach.
Located atop SIXTY Beverly Hills, Above SIXTY was named the No. 1 restaurant with the best views in America. Within walking distance of Rodeo Dr., visit the restaurant to take in 360-degree views of L.A.’s skyline and canyons while kicking back with a Latin-inspired menu in a trendy atmosphere.
Guests of this resort can make a splash at the heated year-round rooftop pool where they can relax in private cabanas, hang out at the intimate bar and watch the sun set over Hollywood Hills.
Dive into the 60-foot pool and Jacuzzi at this rooftop that’s surrounded by panoramic views of the L.A. and Century City skyline. Hotel guests can sprawl out on chaise lounges, sip a signature cocktail, juice or smoothie and feast on light fare from the Naturally Peninsula menu which features herbs, fruits and vegetables grown on-site at the rooftop garden.
To celebrate their 90th anniversary, The Beverly Wilshire has launched a Secret Rosé Garden rooftop pop-up. Inspired by the resort’s rooftop Garden Lounge from the 1960s and 70s, the pop-up is hidden behind the door for room 211 and features light bites, an extensive variety of rosés, libations and rooftop bocce ball and badminton on the Rodeo Terrace which overlooks Rodeo Dr. The 6,000-square-foot garden is also home to a 55-foot floral wall, a suspended floral installation, marble tables and rosé-inspired treats.
