I live locally in Manhattan Beach. I mainly have visited the sky lounge and the lobby bar for social outings. I would recommend against patronizing these venues.
I made the mistake of opening a tab with my credit card at the sky lounge. I was charged twice the number of cocktails my group consumed that evening. Upon leaving I was presented with a final charge bill but not an itemized list of charges.
After me insisting on a review of the above and visiting in person with with the manager of the sky lounge (Shawna), I discovered that there were specific types of drinks charged that were never consumed by my group and that company protocol was violated (as admitted by the manager herself) by not presenting me an itemized list of charges upon requesting my signature.
Even after the above was noted and admitted by the manager, she would not reverse the erroneous if not fraudulent charges.
There are other options for upscale clubs in the area and certainly more trustworthy.
