Exclusive hotspot. At this 1960s-inspired poolside lounge in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the best and brightest of Hollywood’s étoiles drop by for sunbathing and scoping the competition by day and cocktails and dancing by night. A recent revamp installed palms and posh cabanas round the pool, but the iconic David Hockney mural remains intact.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Daytime: designer swimwear. Evening: something hip and hot–when in doubt, err on the side of form-fitting, short, and sparkly (if you’ve got it, ladies, this is the place to flaunt it).
GO HERE WITH
The girls; a date
Hollywood heavy hitters (celebs, industry execs, and the like), as well as the city’s ubiquitous flocks of young-and-tanned aspiring actors.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The cutthroat scene is a classic LA experience, and the sultry retro ’60s vibes are sexy.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The service is often slow, sloppy, and haughty.
GOOD TO KNOW
If you’re coming on a date, it’s worth reserving bottle service because the door is hit-or-miss for couples.
