And what a treat it all is. Start your day with breakfast in the café-style restaurant, the sun-drenched terrace is the perfect relaxing spot to enjoy a cappuccino and avocado toast, before heading to the spa for an energy boosting Vitamin IV drip or a workout in the gym. The young and beautiful crowd flit around the rooftop pool during the day, lounging away the hours on pink sunbeds. But this relaxation does not last for long. At night, the rooftop cocktail bar comes alive as guests gather to watch the sunset, before heading over to what could be argued is Pendry’s most impressive highlight: Wolfgang Puck’s Merois restaurant. Puck’s fame heralds from his first restaurant venture, the celebrity haunt, Spago in Beverly Hills, and Merois is not to be missed. The elegant, buzzy setting isn’t just filled with LA’s movers and shakers. Sweeping views over Sunset Strip, slick and attentive service and the menu, an eclectic fusion of Pan Asian, Japanese, French and seasonal Californian cuisine have made this restaurant one of LA’s hotspots. Opt for the delicious and beautifully plated sushi, the bluefin tuna is particularly good, followed by the more hearty dishes of Shanghai lobster with crispy spinach or the Jidori half chicken. This first class restaurant offering is just part of why the Pendry ticks all of the boxes. Not only does the hotel complement the roots of the city, but a stay here really is metropolitan luxury at its finest.
