We thoroughly enjoyed happy hour at the High Rooftop Lounge. It is an experience that shouldn't be missed when you're visting Venice Beach. The scenery from the lounge, especially at sunset, can't be beat.

The food wasn't as good as the view, thus the "very good" rating instead of "excellent." It's a great place for a stunning view -- the most important reason to go. Enjoy!

Brilliant atmosphere, great chillaxing loungy atmosphere and fantastic view at magic hour. Good drinks, but don´t expect food here - they only serve tiny little snacks - which is absolutely fine with your drink. The view on the ocean is exquisit and people love to hang out here - flirty atmosphere which is fun to watch...

This rooftop bar offers one of the best panoramas I've seen yet. You can watch a gorgeous sunset over the ocean, then tun your head east and see snow-topped mountain (Big Bear, I believe). And this was in March. The bar offers very good wine and cocktails. (I didn't sample the beers.) One of my favorite places to people-watch in L.A.

This place is all about the views and they are spectacular! Make reservations because it is very popular rooftop lounge and the drinks are good but limited. They didn't have a blender and my friend had to explain how to make a B52. Also be prepared to take the stairs if you're planning on arriving just before sunset. The elevator becomes quite busy.

Watching the sunset was amazing and I woke up early to watch the sunrise. There isn't any service for sunrise which suited me. It was a peaceful way to welcome a new day.

I haven't stayed at this hotel but I have used the rooftop bar - definitely has one of the nicest views in Los Angeles (aside from Griffith Park) looks down on venice beach - the hustle and bustle then beach and ocean.

Great place to relax, drink and watch the sunset Drinks are hotel prices but good and service was swift. We also ate from their bar menu - ahi tuna tacos and the steak sliders - both were very small but good - which we were relieved about as some of the Yelp food reviews hadn't been great. Again hotel prices but you're at a hotel - and to be honest the view is worth it.

Comfy seats - even gave us blankets for when the sun went down and the wind got up a bit.

Great for couples, friends and there were a few people there doing business too.
