    The Suite 700 rooftop at this Santa Monica hotel offers a stunning vista overlooking the Pacific Ocean Palisades Park. Watch the sunset over the Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier while sipping on a glass of champagne.

    If you're in a relationship and needing to score some points, booking a room and having a night on the property is definitely the way to do so. The vibe is like Chateau Marmont, minus the Hollywood hype.

    The Roof on Wilshire is the type of classy joint that has cabanas by its rooftop pool with some sweet panoramic views. It also has food served all day, a menu helmed by chef Eric Greenspan.

    It's a complete 180 from many of the aforementioned establishments: super chill, no dress code and certainly no bottle service. The rooftop does have great vibes though, and it won't cost you an arm and a leg to hang for the day.

    The rooftop bar has a pool, a fireplace and plenty of heat lamps to keep you warm and toasty. It's decked out in Moroccan decor and bartenders will pour you a stiff one (especially if you order an Old Fashioned).

    A little oasis in the heart of Hollywood exists at this chic boutique hotel. The Redbury's secluded red-painted rooftop is lit by strings of bare Edison lights, and there are plenty of plush couches and cozy fire pits to snuggle by.

    KCRW sometimes hosts concerts on the rooftop too, which naturally draw a little bit more of a hipster crowd. It's a total scene.

    The name of this hotel bar is High. If you want a sweeping 360-degree view of Venice Beach and its surrounding landscapes (all the way to the Santa Monica Pier), Hotel Erwin's High bar does the trick.

    They have two outdoor fireplaces, various fire pits as well as lounge and table seating both indoors and out. And there's often live jazz music on the outdoor patio during the spring and summer months.
