Certainly THE place to watch sunset over LA, impressive friends and colleagues, and enjoy the TOP of LA! Amazing menu, nice wine list, and incredible view! Of course, the bill will match, but it's a once in a lifetime experience!

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

I think they book you on the basis of 3 people at 70 dollar for the base menu of 2 starters plus main course. On age, no idea, best to check with them. Worth a trip for the view and the general restaurant experience.
