This Hollywood hotspot has that specific laid-back LA vibe. It offers 360-degree views, and you can easily see Downtown, the Hollywood, South Bay, Westside, and everything else located between these four points. Come to this bright rooftop bar for sky-high brunch. Highly recommend eating French toast with peanut butter and banana while sipping a ‘Throw Mama from the Train’ cocktail. When the night is warm, go to play a hot dance under the stars. Their DJs know how to shake the crowd.

Go downtown LA and find Perch. This French restaurant probably is not the most exciting rooftop in this area, but it is probably the most beautiful, and you shouldn’t miss it. Being a part of the crowd in this cozy two-level space overlooking the Pershing Square can be a matter of prestige. You can meet many downtown locals drinking their drinks here while comfortably sitting in plush sofas or one of the velour bar stools.

Its name tells everything. The High Rooftop Lounge is an all the go spot at the top of the Hotel Erwin. Make a reservation in advance, even if you are a hotel guest, take a glass of one of their artistic cocktails, and enjoy a fabulous sunset over the Pacific. Enjoy a piñacoco sangria, hot root float, and spiked cocoa or pick out a local craft brew if you are not a fan of sweet drinks.

There is a decent selection of roof bars on Beverly Hills, but Above SIXTY is one and unique. The bar is open to members and guests of Sixty Beverly Hills, but they provide cabana reservations throughout the day. On the other hand, a luxurious rooftop lounge is full of people at night. Come here for a ‘sunkissed’ cocktail, a glass of good wine, and beer along with excellent meals. Try avocado toast. It is something special.

Downtown palm-laden roof bar Broken Shaker offers eclectic cocktails with colorful garnishes. Plus, you can try their excellent snacks and bites menus, including my favorite guac with peanut salsa. Come around sunset and enjoy the breathtaking view. Buzzy, bright, and cheerfully colorful, this spot is open during the daytime, but you can also come here for a night out with your friends. Don’t miss this unique perfect perch that contributes to the exclusivity of LA.

Yes, I know, Malibu is something special. And Moonshadows is something special in this special place. This water-on place with an outdoor lounge area has a unique view over the Pacific. Sit in one of the white sofas under curtained booths and catch afternoon sunrays while drinking your margarita. After dark, meet Malibu locals who come here to breathe air filled with salt and enjoy the best company on the beach.

SkyBar is a nice rooftop and poolside bar in West Hollywood where locals and their guests come after a long, crazy cocktail night. This Mexican-style oasis is one of the rare bars for the all-ages crowd. When you need a winning combination of a breathtaking view of the city, exclusive ambiance, and place near the pool, come here, grab the cocktail, some seafood or the harissa hummus, and enjoy the moment.

Located on the 73rd floor, Spire 73 is definitely the tallest open-air bar in the whole Western hemisphere. This rooftop bar offers an epic view of Los Angeles from the top of the InterContinental hotel. Sip your expensive cocktail slowly. However, the exceptional experience that this place offers is worth the given money. Take a seat along the bar and enjoy their vast selection of whiskey. If you are not a hotel guest, you need to pay a $25 cover fee after 8 pm.

As a true Moroccan oasis, Upstairs is located at Downtown Historic Core, on the top of Ace Hotel. Sip sangria and share small plates with someone you love the most. Begin the night with a smooth drink such as Saturn Return made with tart cherry liqueur, dry sherry, mezcal, and lime. Enjoy the benefits of provided by surplus seats while their DJ spinning cool electronic beats. Their attentive staff will do their best to make the night unforgettable.
