One of LA's best assets is its proximity to a wide spectrum of breathtaking views. Another one of LA's best attributes is its bars so we thought we'd combine the two and give you a guide to the city's best bars with a view!
Rooftop at the Ace Hotel
For fans of good drinks, architecture, city lights and skylines, the rooftop bar at the Ace Hotel in downtown is the perfect place to post up. Come for weekend brunch or an after-party following one of their theatre screenings or concerts.
If you want to take in some seaside views, American Junkie has a beach chair and beverage ready for you! Enjoy live bands, happy hours, sports screenings and, of course, that ocean vantage point!
Just look at it, a sprawling city view from a couch, next to a pool. Skybar is by far one of the most beautiful in LA. Come for Cocktail Academy, yoga or their Dive In Theater, there's always a variety of reasons to come and soak in the view.
Ooh la LA, the 15th story lounge at Perch has one of the best vantage points in the metropolitan area. The French-inspired rooftop bistro offers unobstructed views of Downtown Los Angeles, fresh bites and delicious cocktails.
A rooftop sanctuary of greenery and weekend bottomless Bloody Marys or Bellinis, Commissary at the Line Hotel is the perfect stop for Koreatown frequenters.
Head to the roof of the Standard for a rooftop swim or late-night cocktails. Both offer up experiences not to be missed. You can even make a ping pong pitstop on your way up at the SPIN Lounge!
If you find yourself near Manhattan Beach, the Strand House is your go-to for a wall-wide view of the sand and sea. We recommend anything off the Strand Tropez Sunday Tropical Sessions menu!
