Hoi Polloi is an all-day restaurant inside the Ace Hotel, which means that besides being useful for literally any occasion you can throw at it, it’s an excellent spot for people watching. The restaurant itself looks like a very cool brasserie designed by Japanese architects, and while the food’s good, you’re unlikely to be doing backflips over it any time soon. You can access Hoi Polloi via the flower shop next to the hotel, or via the hotel itself, like a normal person. Hit it up with confidence for breakfast meetings, oysters and champagne, or a low-key dinner.
