West Hollywood’s ultra-chic restaurant and rooftop bar, E.P. & L.P., is serving much more than just sumptuous handcrafted cocktails and modern Asian bites this summer. The L.A. hot spot is now host to the Melrose Rooftop Theatre, an outdoor screening series on the rooftop space adjacent to its open-air bar, L.P. While the series will still feature a mix of cult classics and newly released films, the event has now gone all-VIP, with individual bean bags for each customer.

To complete the fully immersive experience, wireless headphones will be provided before the picture begins at sundown via a Da Lite 16’ x 19’ screen. A pre-screening “Express Menu” dinner will be available for $34, and will include a savory, three-course spread from executive chef Louis Tikaram. Of course, you can also enjoy small bites and sip on signature cocktails or wine from L.P. during the show. To recap, that’s dinner, drinks and an open-air movie, all in one place—better yet, all via one parking spot. It’s the recipe for a perfect summer date or evening out with friends.
