Unobstructed 360-degree views, French-inspired fare, and classic specialty cocktails all await you at Perch in the depths of Downtown Los Angeles. Since its opening in August 2011, this restaurant/lounge/bar has created quite the buzz around town snaking its way into the must-visit bar scene circuit. Come out for Apertif Hour from 4-6 pm, imbibe $5-$7 liqueurs, wine, and cocktails, and savor discounted hors d’oeuvres.
A nice alternative to The Edison (located only a couple blocks away), Perch is a unique urban hangout complete with outdoor fire pits and indoor fireplaces on the 15th and 16th floors of the Pershing Building. On any given night, take in an impromptu cabaret act or listen to the sounds of sweet jazz lilting through the Art Deco inspired space.
Truly cosmopolitan types will feel right at home gazing out at the city lights while devouring Chef Benjamin Udave’s (formerly of The Jonathan Club) playful and inspired dishes. Start your meal off right by ordering the Chicken Cordon Bleu Poppers and progressing to a variety of main dishes like Pork and Beans, Lamb Burger, or vegetarian-friendly Bonbon Risotto. End your meal with a decadent Chocolate Custard or Apple Tart dessert for a dazzling finish to a starry evening.
