Perfect For:Day Drinking

Rick’s is the pool bar at The Hotel Figueroa downtown. Due to its ground floor location, your only real view is of the neighboring Residence Inn, the drinks themselves are pretty pricey, and the crowd is mostly scattered out-of-towners who are looking to get as drunk as possible before walking over to LA Live next door. Unless you’re staying at the hotel, you don’t need to come here.
