7000 Hollywood Boulevard

For a tropical oasis right on Hollywood Boulevard you can’t go wrong lounging by the pool at the Roosevelt. This intimate pool party is usually reserved for starlets who head to the pool soon after waking up from a long night out, usually at the Roosevelt. But don’t let that stop you from strapping on those pool heels and ordering a very strong specialty cocktail. And by specialty cocktail we mean some of the best drinks in the entire city! Take a dip in the pool, a sip of your umbrella-adorned drink and thank the party gods that you are at one of the top pool parties in LA.

Pagoda Bar at Yamashiro’s

BBQ pool parties at Yamashiro’s are back for another year and we couldn’t be happier.
