Full Price Happiness High 08/01/2009
I really can't blame High, the rooftop bar at the Hotel Erwin, for not having a Happy Hour. With a flawless view of Venice beach and perfect Sunsets, it's Happy Hour 24/7 up there. Granted, I would be HAPPIER if they opened at 11:30 on Saturday, so I could park myself in the sun and host a revolving stream of locals as the day unfolded, but alas, they open at 3:00 on the weekends. Last night I pink-biked it over to High around ten and met a long lost friend for a little night cap. Drinks aren't cheap- but the price does include raging heat lamps, super-cool glow-in-the-dark illuminated menus, and a big ol' spa blanket if you get chilly from the ocean breeze. Tom & Tiffany keep that ship running tight and the servers are often as quick as they are cute, although the crowd can vasilate from the chic to the loudly mis-behaved. Last night, the company and the night were divine, leavng me High indeed... I recommend for splurge!
