E.P & L.P.
E.P. is an Asian eating house without regional boundaries. With spectacular views of the Hills and Hollywood Basin, L.P. is one of the largest format rooftops in Los Angeles.
This rooftop that’s on top of EP Restaurant has great views, fire pits, amazing cocktails, and craveable small plates like Salt and Pepper Calamari and Seasoned Waffle Fries, plus a couple of sandwich and taco options. All craft cocktails are available by the glass or pitcher, with refreshing choices like Sexy Back with tequila, cantaloupe, lime, and ginger syrup, and several frozen options to cool you down on those balmy LA afternoons. Cut your work day short and stop by during weekday happy hour from 4–6 pm.
How to book: Walk-ins only.
Rooftop drinks automatically ups the romantic ante, making L.P.’s expansive 5,500-square-foot rooftop a must for our list. You can grab cocktails and snacks while gazing out and admiring the sparkling lights. For a truly romantic night, grab drinks before or after dining downstairs at E.P. The Modern American restaurant is favored for its seasonal menu featuring the best California ingredients. For Valentine’s Day, head chef Nick Russo cooked up a special menu which includes Kingfish Tartare, Pan-Seared Scallops, Wood-grilled Kerwee Angus Ribeye with peppercorn sauce, and more.
How to book: L.P. doesn’t take reservations and is first-come/first-served. Reservations for E.P. are strongly recommended and can be made online or by calling 310-855-9955.
