Gorgeous view of Santa Monica beach, the Penthouse is Gorgeous, and the people are Gorgeous. Drinks are strong.

The moment you walk in you feel this sense of calm. I like coming for cocktails and the lounge menu (one day I'll come for brunch). Unique menu items like the twist on an American classic, black truffle grilled cheese and the tongue pastrami sliders make this a fab stop.

Love the ambiance and service. The service and ambiance at The Penthouse is second to none. For this reason alone, it should be on your list of places to try in LA. The food is good, some of the dishes are excellent (the tomato Mozzarella flatbread, mac and cheese and all dessert were highlights for me), while others are a miss (salmon). The wait staff is incredible, as are the swaky booths overlooking the pacific. The scene gets hip hopping at night, great place for drinks as well. The bar can get noisy and valet parking can be a pain. All in all, I loved the experience and would absolutely recommend.
