Rooftop High

Posted on: July 16th, 2018 by Carrie Young No Comments

Everyone is getting high in LA these days. Well, maybe not that way. The trend for partying outdoors, high on rooftops, shows no signs of slowing down. Look up above for proof, at Élephante Beach House, a sky-high restaurant and lounge that recently opened in Santa Monica from Eveleigh/Little Ruby/Goldie’s owner, Nick Mathers. If you live, work or play by the beach, you’ll no longer need to go anywhere near the 405- thankfully- to find a stylish, modern rooftop party to join. Or to find a crowd of chic people joining this one. It’s a real beauty at three floors up, sunny with native plants and natural stone, cottage-y custom furniture and acquisitions from North Africa and Southern Italy, beachy bars in many directions, plus views of the Pacific Ocean that are basically without parallel off the Pier. Start in the afternoon while the sun’s hanging around. Grab some Eames-ish looking wood chairs by the glass partition separating you from the water and proceed to order something cold and drinkable. You’ll love this elevated, al fresco situation very much and will most likely decide to stay for dinner- which could involve a table bearing grilled octopus, cacio e pepe pizza, and whole lobster paired with a nice ocean breeze- not to mention their delish cocktails.
