The Endless Los Angeles Summer

For most of the country, summer ends after Labor Day. However, in Los Angeles it stays warm until spring. Stay outside and enjoy the SoCal sun by dropping in one or all of these places.

Surrounded by spectacular views spanning downtown Los Angeles, the ocean and the Hollywood sign, the rooftop Altitude Pool at the SLS Beverly Hills offers a seductive atmosphere. Patrons can enjoy refreshing cocktails and light fare by José Andrés. For the rest of September, Altitude transforms into a pool and lounge from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., offering weekend VIP bottle service and live music with DJs.
