Rooftop Lounge

The view is breaktaking. We were there when there was a rain storm moving through the area. We went up to the top around 10 p.m. when residents of the hotel can access it after the bar has closed. We stayed and finished our wine. It was perfect!

We went for lunch on the third day of our stay after deciding against Nick's due to the hour-long wait. When we arrived, I noticed the view was not that great. Only one part of the deck overlooks the water. The rest overlooks houses and Pacific Coast Highway. Perhaps their sunset view is spectacular, but the daytime view leaves much... More

Great spot for a late afternoon hangout for cocktails, appetizers, and a stellar sunset. You won't regret it. Even despite fighting a large crowd, it was worth it. The fresh fruit mojitos are excellent and the bartender did not skimp on the alcohol. The bartenders are great and so efficient.

The view is breathtaking and because the sunset view is phenomenal it gets really busy, so I would definitely book a table as this is a great way to enjoy the sunset and a drink, or two. Unlike some places with a view that rely solely on the view to draw in a crowd, the Rooftop Lounge has a great... More

The food was very good for tapas style dining. Drinks were above average and the staff was very attentive even with a full deck. Crowd was big so getting a table is key. As the night goes on the crowd gets a little more "loose" and "mindless". Perfect place to watch the sun melt into the ocean.

My wife and I had two cocktails and the chicken empanadas appetizer. The empanadas were excellent and the views of the Pacific are outstanding! Yes I would go here again.

Loved sitting out on the patio on a beautiful day with delicious drinks and appetizers. Warning, it gets busy and is hard to find a seat on the weekends.

The view from this spot is amazing. Bar choices are just okay but good and music are good. Go in a weekday if you can due to crowding. It is tucked away in top of The Casa Del Camino hotel.
