Founder of nail fashion product line NCLA, Elin Dannerstedt
Elin Dannerstedt: I believe the US bank building is the tallest on the west coast, needless to say, you go there for the GORGEOUS views of DTLA. It feels like you’re in another world.
ED:I love this place and the decor/vibe inside. It feels so glamorous and very old Hollywood. When I go there, it feels like taking a trip back in time — I love it! The details in the furniture and decor is really gorgeous.
Rooftop at the Ace Hotel
ED:This place is right by my house and convenient for me. The views of Downtown LA are great and it’s a very chill place to hang. You can order drinks and they have small bites during the day that are quite good.
ED: I like this rock and roll bar in downtown. They always play good music and it’s a nice neighborhood bar.
Tenants of The Trees
Silver Lake, $$
ED: This is a great place to go with a group of friends and I always run into friends there. The cocktails are great and there are plenty of seats to sit outside. Overall a great place.
ED: Everytime I’m with my group of gfs, we always have a great time there. This club is not too big nor small, it’s the perfect size. I always like the music they play and I love dancing there with the girls.
ED: It’s a fun place to go with my girlfriends and the private karaoke is always a good time. The entrance is through a parking lot garage and you would never guess this bar is there.
Above SIXTY Beverly Hills Hotel
Beverly Hills, $$
ED: This place is so LA. The pool, the views, the drinks, it’s relaxing there whether you go during the day or at night.
Skybar at Mondrian
Hollywood Hills West, $$$
ED: I’ve been going to this place for as long as I’ve lived in LA. I love sunny weekend afternoons there, it’s chill and mellow and has beautiful views of the city.
The Know Where Bar
ED:This casual bar is perfect for a chill night in Hollywood. A hole in the wall that’s not pretentious and perfect to meet my friends for a couple of drinks.
