This week, Curbed LA takes a look at hotels around town as part of Hotels Week. To chip in, Eater examines some of the best bars inside hotels and highlights the ambiance and drink offerings of each.
Last year during Hotels Week, Eater went through some of the best hotel restaurants in the city. This time around, a look at the bars, the ones that either exclusively serve the hotel, or are so connected to the identity of the hotel that they might as well be one and the same. Hotel bars are the ideal place to have a casual meet up, or an impromptu party with friends and strangers alike. Yes, plenty of pretension pervades hotel bars around town, but they are also places to mingle and catch up. Drinks on the whole are getting better each year, with some marquee spots like POT Bar at the Line Hotel, Library Bar at the Roosevelt, and Bar Centro at SLS leading the way, so don't be afraid to stray away from the typical vodka-soda combo. Here now, a Handy Guide to Hotel Bars in Los Angeles.
