O.K quick, its hot, I need iced coffee on tap, plus a cabana, plus an umbrella, plus a sun shade- help!
L.A starts off quite cold for an early riser like me (7am hike anyone?) but swiftly turns into a sludgy melting pot of sweatiness.
Which is why roof top pools are your new best friend to hide out in in and vintage inspired ones even better! But alas, some in L.A do not allow non-guests up so heres my round up of ones that do and the conditions that lie with it….Enjoy! Xxx
1) Peninsula Beverly Hills
I love this place! It has an old school afternoon tea restaurant on the ground floor (The Belvedere) and you can take your doggie up to the top deck for some sunning and delicious healthy food, As long as your buying food or drink you can go up to the pool- plus free wifi and the best view in town- Result!
The Roosevelt is classic vintage extravaganza and the pool is just divine. But you have to buy $25 of food to go up there, so go hungry and relax as you dine on the roof.
3) Farmers daughter Hotel
The farmers daughter hotel allows anyone to go- they even have a funny little rule, if you jump in the pool with your clothes and shoes on you can have your meal half price- tempting on a really hot day I have to say!
4) The Avalon Hotel
It doesn’t get more vintage than the Avalon. Located at the corner of Beverly Drive it is pure retro glam. Don a 1950’s swimsuit and cat eye glasses and you really will fit in with the decor!
5) The Beverly Hills Hotel
O.K so not strictly rooftop but whos looking at that when the hotel behind you is completely pastel pink dreaminess! The cocktails also come in vintage style glasses and with the sun umbrellas also being a tinge of pink you’ll be seeing the world through rose tinted spectacles where ever you look!
