A2 Rating Scale (out of 5):
WHERE: West Hollywood on La Cienega & Melrose. E.P. is behind the Alice & Olivia store, L.P. is on the roof of it.
WHEN: E.P. (6PM-12AM 7 days/week); L.P. (5PM-2AM 7 days/week) – we recommend checking out that sunset view.
THE DISH (purely dishing on L.P.):
WHAT TO ORDER: drinks on drinks. They have some prime cocktail creations (boba with booze ($15)- is this shit for realz?) and delicious rosé (aka Summer Water — shoutout to Danny T).
WHAT TO SKIP: The food on the rooftop. We ordered the nachos (if you could even call them that – they were more like rice cakes with some strange fishy sauce) and the grilled veggies (1/2 of which were hot peppers that we couldn’t eat). PASS.
WHAT TO KNOW: We’re officially dubbing this spot the Bungalow of West Hollywood. By 8:30PM on a Friday there was already a line at the door (so plan accordingly OR get your “I know… who knows…” sketch ready OR just have tits and show some skin). And it is SUCH a scene (for better or worse). Swap out that beach view for a pano of the Hollywood Hills and subtract some d-bags (for now, at least)… voila!
WHAT TO WEAR: All we have to say is look HOT. The crowd is all sorts of beautiful (with the occasional cougar trying to recreate her glory days) so do your best to dress the part (of the hottie, not the cougar). And when we say dress the part, we mean that typical LA model look; you know, like you just threw together whatever was lying around, yet still look perfect — not like you’re trying to go to an Hwood club — that’s SO not cool.
WHERE TO PARK: Uber. The end.
EDDR LIFE LESSON: Stay current… #rooftopsandrose is an official hashtag as of now… get with it.
A2 FINAL THOUGHT: This is definitely our new go-to ‘top….and just in time for Summer Summer Summertime. The rooftop food is no bueno, which is perfect because if we’re trying to pull off that model look (mentioned above) we should just stop eating now. Liquid diet is in play (ok, ok, only when at L.P).
