LA abounds with rooftop bars, but even Westsiders will make the pilgrimage east for a night at Mama Shelter. There’s just something about it. Maybe it’s the direct view of the sun setting over the Hollywood sign, maybe it’s those rainbow-striped loungers you sink into, or maybe it’s the tunes spun nightly by the DJ. Arrive before dusk—especially on particularly balmy LA nights—and take over a corner with a crowd of friends. The barmen are some of the best in town (Y Tu Mama’ Tambien is the spicy mezcal cocktail to order), and those panoramic views will keep you spellbound until last call.
