You might think of Skybar at Mondrian Los Angeles as a warm-weather destination, an open-air poolside lounge where you can spend the summer sipping spirits in the sun. It turns out, though, that the Skybar high life, with splendid views from its Sunset Strip perch, is something you can experience year-round. The bar’s entire outdoor space is enclosed for the season, so you can visit on nights when it’s (a little) cold and/or (a little) rainy.
If the weather or your unwavering holiday spirit has you thinking about sleighs and snowmen, Skybar has winter cocktails to keep things festive. These drinks (all $16) include the Cinnamon Mule (Belvedere Red, muddled lime wedges, cinnamon syrup, and ginger beer), the Party Cloudy (Belvedere Citrus, Canton ginger liqueur, fresh lemon juice, muddled basil, and cloudy apple cider), and the Passion and Spice (Absolut, Disaronno, and passion-fruit puree).
