Pick a warm night and request a poolside table. I had the chicken paillard and a very delicious bottle of rose. Felt like summer and really enjoyed the experience.

During our stay at the Sunset Tower Hotel, we had dinner in The Tower Bar (Dannon was an excellent server), along with late lunch/happy hour (Bethany was a pleasure as well). Food and service were perfect from our point of view.

Walked across the street to check out the tower and was really pleasantly surprised but such a cozy and intimate bar on Sunset. Beautiful room, great service and music, but pricey drinks.
