Picture Perfect!

Never a dull moment on the rooftop above the beaches of Laguna. Being a local, what I can say I love about this place is the mentality that goes along with the view. I wouldn't go so far as saying it's peaceful because you won't find yourself up here alone but the vibe is very kick-back/relaxed... read more

Arrive to watch an incredible southern California, Orange County sunset. Dolphins do pop by, too! The drinks & appetizers are delicious & the staff is friendly. This is a great local spot to eat, drink, socialize, catch a world-famous sunset....and maybe even rub elbows with someone famous. A must - visit for sure! Memories will be created & last a... More

Best view from rooftop in orange county area. The food is pretty good. The prices did go up significantly but did not prevent the crowds from coming. Get there early before it opens to get good (shaded) tables.

Loved the feel and vibe at this bar. The views are incredible and the people are just insanely nice in LB. Perfect bar to grab a quick bite or drink and meet with friends.

Honestly the best place on the westcoast for a date, or a romantic get-away. The food, happy hour and service is awesome. Get here early though. It gets VERY busy! Can't wait to go back!

The rooftop lounge is busy but the view is great if you can arrange a seat. One of the better views in town.

Only thing going for this place is the view everything else sucks. The only reason we still go to this place is when we have people come from out of town. We take them here for a few drinks around sunset. We don't order food anymore here due to too many problems. Most of the problems came from the fact... More

We found this place through Trip Advisor and absolutely loved it. You have to go through the hotel lobby and upstairs to get to the lounge but it's not too hard to find. I believe they close between lunch and dinner so double check on that before you go. The food was great, I got a salad and my friend... More
