Beachside rooftops are in surprisingly short supply in LA, making this an in-demand spot for sun-kissed Venice Beach locals who occasionally help the place live up to its name with the good stuff. Even if you’re staying at the hotel, be sure to make a reservation. After all, there’s nothing like a multi-hued sunset over the Pacific with a cocktail in hand to get Angelenos buzzing. Getting chilly? Evening bar-goers can stay past sundown wrapped up in one of the bar’s cozy blankets and a spiked cocoa ($10) or hot root float ($10). Start your staycation with a piñacoco sangria with a spiced rum float ($11) or passion fruit mojito ($13). If you don’t like your drinks sweet, stick to local craft brews to pair with midnight (gourmet) munchies like mini lobster roll ($5) and a bacon, cream cheese, jalapeño hot dog ($9).
