Where to Grab a Drink in Los Angeles Right Now
Blending the sophistication of the French Riviera with a laid-back LA attitude, Bar Lis sits atop Hollywood’s brand-new Thompson Hotel, with a cocktail list and small plates menu that also borrow inspiration from the European seaside. Make sure you stop by before sunset so you can take in unobstructed views of the Hollywood Hills, including the Hollywood sign, as the sun takes its final bow. Sip on refreshing cocktails like Strawberry Fields with Belvedere Vodka, St.Germain, strawberry, mint, rhubarb, and prosecco, or take things up a notch with the Petit Paloma with Patron Silver Tequila, chai-infused rum, grapefruit, lime, soda, and flower petal salt. Balance out your drink tab with bites that include Kusshi oysters in a rosé Champagne mignonette sauce, herbed fries, ham croquettes, and hamachi crudo. After dark, Bar Lis comes alive with DJ sets, and the bar’s retractable roof makes the space a year-round destination.
