Munch on Red Curry Prawns Above the Lights of L.A. Live

The newest hi-rise happy hour for the summer

Drinks with a view is all the rage right now. Upstairs at the Ace Hotel is a bonafide hot spot even when it’s cold out. Perch has steady lines for Parisian-style brunch and clubby nights near Pershing Square. And soon we’ll have a restaurant atop the U.S. Bank Tower with unparalleled views of the city. Here’s one more to add to the list, at least for the summer: The roof on 26th floor at The Ritz-Carlton at L.A. Live now offers bites and sips from WP24 on Friday and Saturday nights.

This is the first time Wolfgang Puck’s crew will serve more than just hotel guests on the roof. With a reservation, anyone can go up there between 6-10 p.m. on weekend nights for items like grilled prawns with sticky rice and red curry; house-made potato chips with toasted nori and tograshi-yuzu sour cream; red snapper ceviche; Thai chicken satays; and even American Wagyu beef sliders. Prices are around $7-$17 for food. It’s not a typical happy hour budget, but once you see the view, you’ll be pretty happy. Plus there’s live jazz. Snazzy.

Call 213-743-8824 for a table. The roof through Labor Day weekend and closes after September 5.
