We recently stayed at the Doubletree for 5 days and made a point of eating here 3 times and at least going for drinks every night. It was a little chilly when we were there but the staff made sure we were surrounded by pation heaters. We had a great time!

The rooftop bar is the best part about the property. It is a great spot to relax and watch the sunset. They have propane heaters to keep travellers warm in the cold winter months.

The night we finally made it in for a nightcap there was a great two man band. It was a Tuesday night. They could sing anything ...and especially played some songs for us from a Canadian band we love.....Blue Rodeo. Well done guys!!!
Staff was nice and were always available.
Lots of heaters everywhere to keep you warm.
Nice place!

The lounge was intimate, rather on the small side for my pleasure. The views were nice from where we sat overlooking the beach. There are options if you desire, there is valet parking for your benefit, or self-parking, and the locale was easy to find. The atmosphere was considerably fun. The music was relaxing, with an open bar feel was not necessarily rushed or aggressive. So expect a bit of a wait for service, but overall nice and polite. We tried many of their signature drinks, while we were there. Came to discover that they been labeled by the bartenders, for their servers by names. Casual, so jeans, flip-flops are more than enough, but everyone was original. Expect to spend a minimum of ten to twelve dollars per drink, the wines can be served individual glass or by bottle depending on your choice, prices range, believe the bottles begin at forty dollars. There is a fire pit, but limited sitting surrounds it, so bring a sweater if arriving at night.

We went there on a Friday night. Our Groupon(ish) type deal is what got us in there. I had read many reviews before so honestly I thought it could go either way. When we arrived, we parked in the basement type area and the elevator/lobby area wasn't all that, but frankly neither are many of the same areas in "swanky" Laguna hotels. We arrived up on the 4th floor and right away saw an amazing, relaxing view of the Pacific Ocean. The seating is more lounge style and not table style, but it worked for us. We ordered some appetizers, entrees and drinks and they all lived up to expectations. Once the sun went down, the firepit was turned on and it created a nice vibe. The only thing that would have made it AMAZING was live music (or at least any noticable music). We would go back for sure! We appreciated the "off the beaten path" atmosphere and we felt like the staff was truly happy to have us join them. Overall an enjoyable experience!
