We attended Sky Bar in LA on Saturday night for a bachelorette party. We had four names on the list, and eleven girls in our party. Vito, one of the bouncers, would not admit the rest of the party into the bar (despite the fact that there was no one in line and it was 11:30pm on a Saturday night) unless we paid $300 for table service. We agreed and went inside. A "table" consists of two teak side tables pushed together. Our waitress said she could only give us a bottle for $350. Again, we agreed. $350 got us a bottle of Absolute and a few carafes of juice. All of which you pour yourself, and juice that probably comes from FSA. Not all of our glasses were clean. The music selection was boring, the others guests were unattractive (at least the men. There were a lot of women there trying very hard to be attractive...) And I'm pretty sure we were the only Americans in the bar. Honestly, I didn't even notice the view. After two painfully boring hours filled with short, pushy, ugly men and bad booze, we decided to leave. Somehow our bill was now $425 (despite our not ordering more of their crap cocktails).
Overall, we were HIGHLY disappointed. Sky Bar may have been a celebrity/LA hot spot five years ago, but its hayday has come and gone. I agree with other reviews that say the bouncers methods are shady, and that it's not worth your time, and DEFINITELY not worth your money. Sky Bar, Vito, I hope you read this review and realize that you've become old hat, and like anything boring in LA, your fifteen minutes is over.
