Discretely hidden on La Cienga Blvd, E.P. & L.P. is only noticeable from the outside during the night by the very long line for entry outside. But a great way to skip the line is to make reservations for dinner, which we’d highly encourage as the food is delicious. The menu features many pan-Asian fusion dishes and some of the most decadent dessert selections you can imagine.

Once done with dinner, you’ll want to head upstairs to the rooftop which features 2 bars (L.P. & Frankie’s Private Bar) and an outdoor cinema. The drinks are the stars on the open air deck, as there is a vast selection of craft cocktails and some fun specialty drinks, such a alcoholic bobas. If you skipped dinner but hungry, fear not, for there is also a rooftop exclusive food menu, and we’d highly recommend the crispy chicken sandwich.

And we did mention there is an outdoor theater on the roof, which is perfect for a date or a group of friends. We’d encourage getting a VIP ticket as it includes dinner and premier seating if you plan to partake in any screenings.

The views from the rooftop deck are tough to beat in the West Hollywood area, so make sure you take a moment to enjoy them while you’re there. The best nights to check it out are on during the warm summer nights and Fridays and Saturday’s are great. We’ll see you around there at some point.

Nightlife Spotlight: Catch LA

Catch5

Venue: Catch LA

Address: 8715 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, CA 90069

Website: catchrestaurants.com

Hours: Mon – Fir 5 pm – 2 am, Sat – Sun 10 am – 3 pm, 5 pm – 2 am

Best Days: Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays

One of LA’s newest and trendiest places, it’s easy to see why when you experience it. Nestled on Melrose Ave, Catch is located on a rooftop that is conveniently close to the Pacific Design Center.

Catch 1

Catch is a known celebrity hangout, which is what makes getting a reservation there a bit of challenge, especially if you plan to go at any remotely convenient time within a month. So if you want to check it out, book a reservation now.

Catch 2

The decor is quite inviting and spectacular, which give the restaurant a very rustic yet chic charm. The drinks are pricey but we’ll admit that they are pretty delicious, so we’ll sip on them with glee while our wallets groan a little bit.

Catch 3

So how is the food? Like the drinks, it’s pricey but also quite tasty, and we admit we love the crispy shrimp. The menu is predominately seafood, so if you don’t like seafood there are a few options for you but not many.

All in all catch is a very solid restaurant. While the food and drinks are very good, the true secret to it’s appeal is that it’s a super Instagram friendly venue, with many places that are perfect for selfies and group photos. So from that viewpoint, catch is a very magical place, so hashtag away when you visit.

Cheers,
