Beachside rooftop bar with chill vibes and epic sunsets.
From the roof terrace at the lovely Hotel Erwin rooftop bar, you get some amazing views over the Pacific Ocean and Venice Beach.
Being the only rooftop in Venice, High Rooftop Lounge feels a lot like a continuing of the beach below, with lounge sofas and large umbrellas. The only difference might be that up here you also have infrared (and blankets) keeping the heat up on chilly nights.
The rooftop bar offers a good selection of well made specialty cocktails and different Californian beers, along with some really tasty bar bites and a weekend brunch. The menu even includes sun screen, so visits during sunny days is no problem at all.
Expect a great lounge vibe on the terrace, perfect for relaxing drinks in the sun. And at night, there are often live DJs picking up the pace a notch.
So the High Rooftop Lounge at Hotel Erwin is an LA rooftop worth a visit both day and night, but the one time you really should try to be here is during sunset hour. The magical views of the sun going down into the Pacific Ocean is something everybody should experience, at least once!
The rooftop terrace is quite large, but if you want to make sure to get one of the comfy lounge sofas, and maybe go for bottle service, you should make reservations in advance.
