One of the most enjoyable things in life is good food. Going out to eat should be a fun and enjoyable experience. It is usually a social event and you get to be served, instead of cooking and cleaning up after yourself at home. You get to sit back, relax, and enjoy good food and good company.
I recently visited The Penthouse in Santa Monica, California and I was so amazed. Living in Los Angeles, there are so many restaurants you hear about that you should try, and this is definitely one of them and I just had to share. When you arrive at The Huntley hotel, you are escorted to a private elevator that takes you to the very top floor, 18 stories overlooking Santa Monica beach and Los Angeles all in one.
You can choose to make dinner reservations or hope to find a spot at their very classy bar. There is also a lounge area where you can sit and have drinks and small plates, thats where we ended up because we didn’t even plan on going there. My friend and I decided last minute and this place was recommended to us. We were still very happy with our experience in the lounge, the whole place is beautiful there isn’t a bad seat in the house.
The decor is absolutely breath taking, everything is covered in white and there are tables that look like VIP cabana’s, there are even fireside tables with complete 360º views of the Pacific ocean from Malibu to the Hollywood skyline-you truly have the best view in L.A. The restaurant is known for its contemporary cuisine and their creative cocktails-which are to die for. When my friend and I went there recently we shared a cheese plate and I had a cucumber martini, both were amazing. The cheese plate is a must have when you go!
The vibe is great and the service was also amazing, the pricing isn’t cheap but you definitely pay for what you get-the amazing view and delicious food are well worth it. I can’t wait to go back for dinner, it’s definitely a special occasion spot for me, but if you’re feeling fancy for some good drinks and appetizers, I say treat yourself.
You truly feel like royalty at this place!
