Spire 73 is another unique bar to add to L.A.'s vast collection of bars. It is part of the Wilshire Grand Center, including the Intercontinental Hotel. I was very curious to see how this location on an open deck on the 73rd floor felt in comparison to other rooftop bars like Perch and Ace Hotel bar. 

Getting in is tricky. The lobby of the hotel is on the 70th floor, and unless you ask Security staff, you are unlikely to figure that out yourself. There is a line of people waiting to get in, by the elevator. Attire is "business casual" for the bar.

The location and decor is quite impressive. The view cannot be beat. Unfortunately, both times I went, the eclectic crowd did not appeal to me, nor did the drinks menu. However, I have to praise the friendly staff and the atmosphere they've provided. I look forwarded to visiting again when they are more settled at this location.
