The shiny new Shay Hotel’s short-lived Celestina rooftop bar has been replaced by the breezier, all-day Canopy Club. The place is now oozing with tropical vibes, including palm print wallpaper, an open-air bar, and plenty of live greenery (along with views galore, of course). The cocktail menu is heavy on agave spirit-forward adult beverages, including the Oaxacan with mezcal, mole, and, habanero, and the tequila-based Horchata Painkiller, all of which you can get by the carafe as well. The all-day menu ranges from grilled artichokes to avocado toast to a smashburger.
How to book: Walk-ins welcome.
Formerly a Baja-tinged escape called Celestina, the rooftop on The Shay hotel was recently transformed into the Canopy Club, an all-day poolside restaurant and bar that evokes the tropics with bright floral murals, scalloped umbrellas, and lush palms, plus amazing views of Culver City and neighboring beach cities. You’ll find refreshing spritzes and tiki-inspired cocktails on the drink menu, like the Pomelo Spritz with Aperol, cappelletti, pink grapefruit, and sparkling wine, and the Horchata Painkiller, with reposado tequila, pineapple rum, horchata, coconut cream, pineapple juice, and OJ. The seafood-driven food menu offers small plates, salads, and bowls, as well as sandwiches and large-format dishes like Umami Salmon with farmers market cucumbers and a Crispy Fish sandwich. A selection of wines by the bottle and glass, beer, kombucha, and seltzers are also available.
