Beverly Hills Hotel: Bar Nineteen 12
Pointe Viven - Jesse Bluma. All rights reserved.
*Update: After giving it a few weeks, I am putting on hold further recommendation of The Beverly Hills Hotel, Bar Nineteen 12. The sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, instituted Sharia law limiting the freedoms and rights of all the people in their county. His ownership interest in the hotel continues and after weeks of pressure he has not reversed his decision.
Bar Nineteen 12 is located in the storied Beverly Hills Hotel. The live music the night we went, by Luca Ellis, made this bar worthwhile. Check to see if there is live music beforehand, as you may want to arrive early enough to get a good seat. Parking: Self parking past the valet, Valet, and Street parking is available--read the signs carefully. The drinks we ordered were good and strong and the waiter was attentive. A nice touch was the truffle popcorn and marinated olives served at our low table. The night I was there the clientele consisted of hotel guests, business seminar goers, a twenty something birthday crowd, single guys and their wingmen, and older men with female miners (think about that one).
"Named in honor of the year the hotel first opened, Bar Nineteen12 offers two distinct settings; an elegant indoor bar and a beautiful terrace overlooking the pool, gardens and towering palms of Beverly Hills. Featuring light fare and unique cocktails from 6:00pm to 2:00am daily, and the best sunset in Beverly Hills. See why Los Angeles Magazine readers voted us “Best in L.A.’”
