A cozy rendezvous inspired by early Hollywood, The Tower Bar and Restaurant offers an elegant haven for the discerning. The Tower Bar also offers casual dress poolside dining with a unique indoor/outdoor setting and incredible, sweeping views of the city.
Designed by internationally renowned decorator Paul Fortune, The Tower Bar is the chicest and most welcoming room in town, with a fireplace and discreet niche seating for privacy. Housed in Bugsy Siegel's old apartment on the ground floor, the 80-seat room is ably administered by maitre d' Dimitri Dimitrov, widely hailed as the city's best. While the cuisine takes its inspiration from northern Italy and the French bistro, the overall accent is distinctly Californian, with a focus on fresh local ingredients.
Steeped in the mystery of a glamorous Hollywood long past, walnut-paneled walls frame sweeping views of the city. Here guests can sip cocktails in flattering rose-colored light, lulled by the playing of famed jazz pianists. "An elegant safe haven for the players," says owner Jeff Klein, "where a duchess can be a devil, and a celebrity can dine with his family one night and his mistress the next."
The Tower Bar's outdoor terrace features chic poolside cabanas and seating on a covered travertine lanai, offering a more casual setting for breakfast, lunch or dinner with spectacular views and old Hollywood ambiance.
The terrace is also available for private events with a separate entrance.
