with summer around the corner i look for any possible reason to enjoy the beautiful weather outdoors. i am always on the hunt for patio seating, outdoor loungin and of course, amazing views.
Here are some of my favorite picks:
HIGH at Hotel Erwin - the recently rennovated Best Western has turned into a chic, non-pretentious (for now!) rooftop hangout with spectacular views overlooking the Venice pier and essentially all of Los Angeles. Great for groups or a date - they even give you blankets to cuddle in when the beach breeze gets too chilly. If you are hungry, opt for the downstairs eatery called HASH. HIGH is better for just drinks and a view in my book.
MOONSHADOWS - nothing beats watching the sunset alongside oceanside views, great drinks and food at Moonshadows in Malibu. Only downside is it may get too crowded in the summers.
SKYBAR at Hotel Mondrion - enjoy it while you can before the summer crowd kicks in! had a really great time here last sunday soaking in the sun and LA view. who can resist the oversized bed, comfy pillows and summer vibe all around?
