Hollywood / Vine stop
Came here around 1pm on a sunny Sunday. When the rooftop at the W was run by Drai's it was a full on party. That was both the best and worst thing about it. Now that the W runs it, it's much more of a lounge. The DJ is a nice touch, though was hoping to see DJ Crash perform (he played at night). It would be nice if they could find a middle ground so that the vibe was more vibrant but not the full on raging party scene on Sundays. The atmosphere is nice and the view is the best in LA. We got a cabana with a reasonable minimum and spent well beyond it. Drinks were fine, usual, overpriced club prices for drinks, shots and bottles. Chris Nelson was there with a smile and helped take care of things. Great guy.
The one thing my entire group could all agree on, however, was the food. It was pitiful. Even something as simple as a fruit plate was almost inedible. You are ordering straight from room service, but the choices are so underwhelming. There are 10 restaurants connected to this W, I can't believe the W can't figure out a way to offer more enticing fare than chicken tenders and hummus. Breakfast/brunch offerings would be appreciated on Sundays. When I think of the W I think of high end and upscale clientele. I can't believe anyone is happy with these choices. Was still a fun time and a great atmosphere, but the food was quite a letdown.
Such a great place to lounge but they need to figure out their system. You are basically ordering from W hotel room service. So it can take an hour to get food. Drinks take a while too considering the bar is just across the pool. And even getting up to the deck was a pain because the front desk insisted its only for guests yet it's listed on open table. Luckily Chris Nelson is there to facilitate and it's still a great venue. They just need a system.
