Well, first, you need to find a bar where you can go and be happening and cool with lots of other happening and cool people. And second, if you do say that, youd already know about Skybar and likely already be there, sipping a martini.
One of those trendy places thats still trendy even though everybody knows about it, what makes the infamous Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood so appealing? Where do we start?
With its kind of rustic, kind of beachy atmosphere in the middle of bright lights in a big city, Skybar offers up a tranquil environment thats still the nightlife hotspot you would expect to find in Hollywood.
Its classy, with something of a 40s Hollywood charm, but at the same time its still more or less for the social elite, so the occasional celebrity is not too uncommon here. That is, of course, assuming you get past the doorman.
Drinks can be a little pricey inside, but once youre poolside in a chaise lounge, looking out at the great expansive view of Los Angeles that Skybar is privy to, you wont be saying no to a Long Island Iced Tea or five for long. You may have to mortgage your house and sell your firstborn to close your tab at the end of the night, but hey, its worth it just to say you went. To the ladies, these are prime opportunities to find that rich sugar daddy to buy you drinks.
So go find those designer jeans, put all of your best bling on and get yourself spiffed up. Be ready to see and be seen because people-watching at Skybar is half (if not more) of the fun. Theres nothing more Hollywood than that, right?
