Sunset Tower Hotel bar and restaurant where elegant Old Hollywood glamour vibes are palpable as waiters glide about in crisp white jackets and a piano spills out early 20th century classics. On the more relaxed pool deck, it’s California casual as guests lounge on white wicker furnishings under broad canvas umbrellas.
