For a Hollywood rooftop, Bar Lis does a decent job of hiding the fact that you’re less than a mile away from TMZ tour buses and men dressed as Captain America. This French Riviera-themed lounge is appropriately chic and, depending on the night, can feel pleasantly intimate or totally packed. Expect the weekend crowd to be a mix of micro-influencers, out-of-towners, and 20-something-year-olds looking to bop around to ABBA remixes and deep house tracks. Cocktails here are quite good, with a canapés menu that includes a very creamy smoked salmon dip that we eagerly scooped up with homemade chips. If sipping gin tonics to blaring nu-disco is not for you, stop by on Tuesdays for the more laidback weekly jazz night and enjoy great city views.
