The Ultimate Guide to Summer in WeHoBy: Kristen Trzcinski
There’s a lot to love about West Hollywood this summer, from rooftop pool decks with amazing views to the hottest live music scene in LA. With so much cosmopolitan excitement packed into just 1.9 square miles, you’ll never want this summer vacation to end.
Hot Pool Parties & Live Music
Skybar Twilight Swim Parties at Mondrian in West Hollywood are back! Dive in every Wednesday throughout the summer, from 9 p.m. – 1:30 a.m. While there, be sure to also check out the new art installation in Skybar created by local artist ThankYouX.
Throughout the summer The Rooftop at The London West Hollywood will host Wednesdays at Sunset, a series of weekly events showcasing specialty priced cocktails and a light bites menu from the culinary team of Gordon Ramsay. Enjoy the panoramic views spanning Los Angeles – from Downtown to the beaches, while you mingle with friends. Summer also brings the relocation of Gordon Ramsay to the rooftop with lunch and dinner being served alfresco.
