Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
What is it that they say about smog? Oh yeah, beautiful sunsets. Make L.A.’s haze work for you at these cocktail bars and beachside spots, where the views rightfully rival the booze. From Downtown’s bars with stellar sights to seaside cabanas in Malibu and Venice, here are the city’s—literally—top rooftop bars.

Before you head to the rooftops, a brief note: Even though both indoor and outdoor dining are open, many of the rooftop bars we previously featured in this list are still closed. But some of our favorite spots that serve food alongside drinks (you’ll need to order both for now) have been able to reopen, and we’ve included them below. Though a couple of spots are only accepting walk-ins, we highly encourage securing a reservation when possible since all of these venues are operating at a limited capacity.
