Best Rooftop Bars in Los Angeles

Best Rooftop Bars in Los Angeles

Although Los Angeles boasts amazing weather all year long, summertime calls for long days and warm nights spent at one of many magnificent rooftop bars the city has to offer. See here for our favorite LA hotspots to visit this summer.

Standard – Downtown LA

While the Standard has an AMAZING pool if you’re unable to hop in for a dip you can still enjoy one of the waterbed pods scattered across the roof at Andre Balaz’s downtown hotel. Mod furnishings and guests who look straight out of burning man set this at one of the best rooftop bars in Los Angeles. Keep in mind there is a $20 cover after 7pm, but don’t worry about that deterring lines that sometimes stretch out into the parking lot.

Mama Shelter – Hollywood

This colorful space is splattered with multicolored sofas and chairs where you can lounge; the Mediterranean-inspired menu also serves falafel, salmon skewers and a few hummus options. Cocktails also pay tribute to the Mediterranean, with drinks like the Za’atar Margarita and Mediterranean Mule. On warm nights, you can dance under the stars while DJs spin an eclectic mix of music, or take in a classic movie on their outdoor screen. There’s also a fusbol table, a yoga studio and sweeping views of Hollywood.

SkyBar – West Hollywood

The real OG rooftop bar, the Mondrian’s SkyBar comes complete with dress-to-impress entry and nightlife cred. You can expect an eclectic crowd ranging from¬†wide-eyed younglings to super-hip older gentlemen, but no matter where you fall on the spectrum, the Mexican-style oasis of flowering walls and gorgeous nooks will win you over, especially with a mojito in hand.
