Where to Get Your Rosé All Day Fix This Summer in LA

Bottlefish
BRENTWOOD

Come summer, there’s no better place to people watch than from the patio of Bottlefish—and no better way to do it than with the restaurant’s Rosé All Day cocktail in hand. In addition to serving everyone’s favorite pink bubbly by the bottle and glass, the Brentwood Gardens seafood restaurant from the founders of California Pizza Kitchen combines Cimarrón Blanco Tequila, muddled raspberries, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and Whispering Angel Rosé for this take on sunshine in a glass.

 

Bouchon
BEVERLY HILLS

Turns out, rosé pairs as well with Chef Thomas Keller’s classical French dishes as it does with pool parties—which is why the Beverly Hills bistro has designated this the Summer of Rosé and will offer complimentary hors d’oeuvres to guests who order a bottle. With a jam-packed wine list, it can be hard to decide between a rosé from France or from the United States; instead, opt for the 2016 Coteaux Varois En Provence to get a bit of both—the rosé is made at the Domaine de Cala winery in Provence, but the label is owned by Joachim Splichal, the LA-based Founder and Chef of Patina Restaurant Group.

 

 

C.O.D Seafood House & Raw Bar
BEVERLY GROVE

At this West 3rd Street seafood restaurant, there’s only one way to do rosé: bottomless, on the second-floor patio with views of the Hollywood Hills. Available Saturdays and Sundays, guests can add unlimited pours of Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial to an Asian-inspired weekend brunch of dishes, including yuzu blueberry pancakes, smoked salmon Benedict, and shrimp and crab omelet.

 

Esters Wine Shop & Bar
SANTA MONICA

No rosé roundup could be complete without Esters Wine Shop & Bar, a lounge and “little kitchen that could” from the Rustic Canyon Family of restaurants, led by husband-and-wife team Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan. Rosé lovers can choose how to get their fix: Esters offers a happy hour with $9 glasses of wine (including rosé) six days a week, rosé-themed wine tastings, and summer snack packs with rosé, reusable glasses, and snacks. Want to take a taste of Esters home? Snag a bottle of rosé from the collection available in the onsite retail store.

 

 

Le Petit Paris
DOWNTOWN LA

Channel your inner Parisian and spend the afternoon slurping down glasses of rosé and oysters at Le Petit Paris’ summer happy hour. Held Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. on the restaurant’s oversized patio, guests can order $18 bottomless rosé and $1 oysters alongside the regular happy hour menu of cocktails, foie gras, escargots, charcuterie, truffle fries, and more.

 

Sugarfina
BEVERLY HILLS

With Sugarfina’s Rosé All Day collection of sweets, Angelenos don’t need to be 21—or taking an Uber—to get their rosé on this summer. Sweet tooths can choose from a line of sweets including sparkling rosé gummy bears, candy rosé roses, and 24k rosé rock candy swizzle sticks. Die-hard rosé lovers can also pick up on-theme phone cases and card sets.

 

 

TART Restaurant
BEVERLY GROVE

The courtyard onsite restaurant of the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel is far too close to The Grove not to have their rosé game on lock—appropriately, the restaurant offers a selection of bottles and glasses including Le Grand Courtâge Sparkling Rosé, Angels & Cowboys Rosé, and Stars Like Ours Rosé. But the rosé options at TART don’t end there—the restaurant recently launched The Lemonade Stand, which will sell frosé (made with frozen rosé and strawberries) and other summer drinks Friday through Sunday (from 1 to 6 p.m.) by the pool all summer long.

 

The Roof Garden at The Peninsula Beverly Hills
BEVERLY HILLS

There are a lot of reasons to visit The Peninsula Beverly Hills’ epic rooftop restaurant during the summer, but none rank higher than the fact that The Roof Garden offers rosé on tap. Whether visiting during the week or for the Weekend BBQ Series held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings through September 24, guests can choose from not one but three rosé wines on draft: Blend, Sabine, and Provence.

 

Jason Chang/ The Rosy Oyster

 

The Rosy Oyster
HOLLYWOOD

The name says it all—at this poolside pop-up next to The Hollywood Roosevelt, rosé and oysters take center stage. Opened just in time for summer, the wine program at this lounge decorated in all-pink everything is run by sommelier Lelañea Fulton—a bohemian with a knack for explaining complex wines with pop culture references (when I met her, she compared a white wine to Marilyn Monroe). If you’re not sure where to start when ordering a rosé from the extensive wine list, she’s got you covered.

 

WP24 by Wolfgang Puck
DOWNTOWN LA

Wolfgang Puck’s signature LA restaurant may offer floor-to-ceiling window views from the 24th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles—but this summer, all eyes will be on the restaurant’s picture-perfect glasses of frosé. Made with rosé wine, grapefruit rose liqueur, and raspberry liqueur, the frozen cocktail is available in the dining room or on the rooftop, where WP24 will host its Independence Day party and Summer Supper & a Show series.

The Rise of Koreatown, the LA Neighborhood Setting Trends for 2017

The KBBQ, karaoke, and soju oasis along Wilshire Boulevard has been a best-kept secret of LA’s most in-the-know foodies and music lovers for years, thanks to spots like The Wiltern, Shrine, and Genwa. But the most recent chapter in this ethnic neighborhood’s history, kicked off by the opening of The LINE Hotel in 2014, has given its streets a new energy; contemporary K-town is marked by a wave of restaurants, bars, and nightlife openings designed to appeal to LA’s most visible trendsetters.

Keep reading for a rundown of five spots defining this new era of K-town’s local culture.

 

The LINE Hotel
Opened: January 2014

No conversation around the developing K-town scene would be complete without giving credit where it’s due: to the LINE Hotel, a four-star social hub, which opened in 2014 on Wilshire Boulevard. By combining a minimalistic, Korean-inspired design aesthetic with a Roy Choi-led culinary program and Houston Brothers on-site bar, the LINE Hotel’s various spaces are designed as much for locals as for guests staying overnight.

When in K-town, Angelenos should be sure to check out Commissary, the hotel’s urban greenhouse restaurant located next to the pool; Break Room 86, an 80s-themed karaoke bar and dance club; and the lobby’s POT Cafe and POT Bar, which offers a 6.5-hour daily happy hour.

 

Here’s Looking at You
Opened: July 2016

While other concepts have found success capitalizing on K-town’s party culture, Here’s Looking at You’s eclectic menu of stracciatella cheese, hamachi collar, and frog legs has secured its place at the top of K-town’s cut-throat culinary game. But don’t just trust us—the concept from Chef Jonathan Whitener, formerly of Animal, snagged a glowing review from Jonathan Gold in November 2016 and was named to Food & Wine’s Best New Restaurants for 2017.

While the food may shine particularly bright at Here’s Looking at You, that’s not to say guests should overlook the beverage selections; the seasonal cocktail menus for 2017 take inspiration from the local LA community. For spring 2017, selections included the Broadway Melody, inspired by the first “talkie” film Best Picture winner of the same name, and the Persistent Rose, inspired by the rosebushes around K-town.

 

The Walker Inn
Opened: May 2016

Hidden behind a secret door at the back of The Normandie Club, The Walker Inn is not your average speakeasy—the 27-seat bar and lounge is a love letter to the cocktail craft. Guests can experience the wildly acclaimed boozy offerings one of two ways: at the bar, where reservations are available two weeks in advance for a two-hour omakase-style cocktail tasting menu, or within the lounge, which accepts walk-ins and à la carte orders.

By only serving cocktails, The Walker Inn’s mixologists have finessed the art of flavors, spirits, and shakers—and earned their place on the 2016 list of The World’s 50 Best Bars.

 

The Venue
Opened: January 2017

As the neighborhood’s first and only VIP underground karaoke experience, The Venue’s 13 luxury suites, menu designed by Executive Chef Kayson Chong, and cocktails by mixologist Devon Espinosa embody contemporary K-town.

The Venue is 10,000 square feet—including a 500-square-foot patio—and guests descending down the stairs are welcomed by a neon sign that reads, “This must be the place.” Indeed, it is—the place for Instagram-worthy karaoke rooms, late-night snacks (hello, three-cheese fried mac), and playful cocktails like the Mic Drop or La La Land, a tropical blend of flavors served in a gold pineapple.

 

Mama Lion
Opened: May 2017

From owner Robert Kim, formerly of The Beverly Hills Hotel, Eurochow, and Park Plaza Hotel, Mama Lion opened in May on the corner of South Western Avenue and West 6th Street—and has quickly proved why the local food, cocktail, and nightlife players should be paying attention to the newest powerhouse neighborhood in town. Though the dramatic supperclub offers a full dinner menu, late-night bites, and $6.01 happy hour, the drinks still take center stage—literally, as cocktails are mixed behind an oversized center bar with three sides of seating.

The airy space aims to be an upscale alternative to some of the more casual social scenes found in this neighborhood, and a dress code and impressive scotch selection have helped secure its place amongst K-town’s most visible venues.

"Friendship comes in many colors." Lionsgate has debuted the colorful official trailer for the long-awaited, highly anticipated animated My Little Pony: The Movie. Indeed, we’ve been hearing rumors about a My Little Pony movie and it’s finally here – hitting theaters in October!

When a dark force threatens Ponyville and the Mane 6, they go on a journey to the end of Equestria to save their beloved home. Featuring the voices of Zoe Saldana, Kristin Chenoweth, Emily Blunt, Uzo Aduba, Liev Schreiber, Michael Peña, Tara Strong, Taye Diggs, and Sia; as well as all the original voices from the TV shows as the Mane 6. This looks totally friend-tastic charming! Enjoy.

James Cameron Talks About Seeing ‘Terminator 2’ in 3D in New Trailer

Terminator 2 in 3D Trailer

"The images feel more real in 3D. There’s a lucidity to it, you really feel like you’re there." Distrib Films US has debuted a second official trailer for the forthcoming re-release of James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 3D. The 3D upgrade was overseen by Cameron himself, as well as DMG Entertainment and StudioCanal, so rest assured it will be top quality. This trailer is similar to the first trailer, but includes clips of Cameron talking about how great the 3D looks, and how cool it is to go back and revisit this movie in 3D some 25 years later. "It looks pretty spectacular." However, this trailer is only available in 2D. This sci-fi action classic stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Robert Patrick, Earl Boen, and Joe Morton. I still don’t know if I really want to see this in 3D or not. What about you?

Here’s the second official trailer for Terminator 2: Judgment Day re-released in 3D, from YouTube:
